NEWBURGH – Town Police in Newburgh have charged Kaliek Goode-Ford, 30, of Newburgh in connection with the triple murder on Sunday, January 26 at a residence at 1751 Route 300.

Police Chief Bruce Campbell said Goode-Ford is believed to be the lone shooter in the incident that left Jimmy Crisantos, 27, Shatavia Crisantos, 26, and Giovanni Tambino, 9, Shantavia’s son from a previous relationship, dead.

A fourth victim, a three-year-old boy whose name is being withheld, is in critical but stable condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

Campbell said a clear motive for the crime is still under investigation; however, a relationship between the suspect and the victims as been established.

Goode-Ford has been charged with three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of criminal possession of a weapon as well as other lesser charges.

Town police were assisted by State Police, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, and the Hudson Valley Safe Streets Task Force.

Murder suspect Goode-Ford is taken away from Newburgh Town Police headquarters on Monday morning by ambulance while State Police search the Hudson River off Highland for the murder weapon.
