NEWBURGH – Police are out looking for a Newburgh man who has been indicted on murder and related charges in connection with the shooting death of a man on Liberty Street in the City of Newburgh on September 19, 2020.

It is alleged that Joshua Williams, 31, shot and killed Jaime Fincher while causing grave risk of death to others at the scene.

“From the beginning, this was a difficult case with little cooperation from the community,” said Acting Newburgh Police Chief Kevin Lahar. “However, the tireless efforts of some very dedicated law enforcement investigators, together with members of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, proved remarkable.”

DA David Hoovler said, “Brazen gunplay in the streets of Orange County is intolerable and the tragic consequences of such conduct are laid bare in this case.”

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating Williams.
