WHITE PLAINS – A Westchester County jury has convicted White Plains resident Brandon Williams, 28, of killing Deron Strange on May 27, 2020.

Williams was found guilty of murder and criminal possession of a weapon on Friday, October 14 after a five-week trial. He faces 15 to 25 years to life in state prison when sentenced in December, said District Attorney Miriam Rocah.

Minutes before midnight on the night of the crime, Williams approached the 35-year-old Strange in the parking lot of his residence in White Plains and fired five rounds from a semi-automatic handgun, striking him in the abdomen and pelvis. He died later in a hospital.

White Plains Police arrested Williams at a hotel in Harrison on May 29, 2020 following an investigation with the assistance of the FBI’s Westchester Safe Streets Task Force.
