Ricardo Delgado, 20, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, was charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of weapon for the March 14 incident that claimed the life of 21-year-old Bushwick resident Eric Santiago. Santiago was shot in the torso while standing along Palmetto Street between Cypress and St. Nicholas avenues, adjacent to the Arena pool hall, just before 1:15 a.m. He was brought by private means to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, where he later died of his injuries. According to the officials, Delgado was taken into custody on March 19 and arraigned to following day in Queens Criminal Court. 108th Precinct Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside Woodside babysitter guilty in 2010 death of 9-month-old boy A Woodside woman has been found guilty of manslaughter in the death of a 9-month-old baby boy, who in 2010 was violently shaken by his babysitter. According to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, 42-year-old Yohani Moran was found guilty on March 23 for second-degree manslaughter after a four-week-long trial in Queens Supreme Court. On March 10, 2010, at about 2 p.m. the baby boy, Dilan Criollo, was dropped off by his mother at Moran’s Woodside apartment, Brown said. At the time of the drop-off, Dilan was “vibrant and in good health.” Moran then fed the baby and he took a nap. Later in the afternoon Dilan “became fussy” and Moran shook him violently and he immediately went limp and became unresponsive, according to Brown. The child was then taken to the hospital where doctors determined he had suffered extensive subdural hematomas, severe brain swelling and bleeding in his eyes, as well as a bilateral retinal detachment, according to trial records. Dilan was placed on a ventilator and later died. “Shaken Baby Syndrome is the leading cause of child abuse deaths each year. The victims are innocent, helpless children and are too often harmed by those entrusted to care for and protect them. In this case, the toddler suffered extensive bleeding on the brain, swelling and damage to his eyes,” Brown said. “Despite life-saving efforts by medical personnel, the child died. The defendant – who is herself a mother – has now been found guilty and faces a lengthy term behind bars.” Moran is expected back in court on April 14 and faces up to 15 years in prison. 110th Precinct Corona and Elmhurst Teens busted after climbing up NYS Pavilion tower Two teens were busted for scaling the New York State Pavilion with graffiti-making tools, reports said. The pair were caught climbing several hundred feet up a decaying staircase of the 1964 World’s Fair structure on the afternoon of March 22 and hanging out on an observation deck, according to Parks Department officials and published reports. Two boys, ages 14 and 15, were charged with trespassing and possession of a graffiti instrument, reports said. They were given juvenile reports and then released to their parents. According to Geoffrey Croft of NYC Park Advocates, Park Enforcement officers found a hole in the perimeter fence, the rusty door leading to the staircase wide open, and a pair of pliers and a broken lock tossed on the ground. The officers needed to use a makeshift ladder made of electrical cords to reach the top of the observation deck to reach the teens, Croft reported on the blog A Walk in the Park.

Antoine Burroughs, (at right) in pleading guilty on March 23 to one count of robbery conspiracy and one count of attempted robbery, admitted to shooting and killing 29-year-old Gerardo Antoniello as he was trying to protect his father, Bartolomeo Antoniello, during the home invasion, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. His accomplice, Leon Whitfield, also pleaded guilty to the same charges and said that he carried a fake gun during the robbery and that Burroughs fatally shot Antoniello during a struggle. According to the case, Burroughs and Whitfield were hired by Frank LaCorte, an associate of the Gambino Crime Family to commit the Sept. 9, 2009, robbery. They were targeting any cash the elder Bartolomeo had on hand from his shop, Romeo’s Pizzeria on Cross Bay Boulevard. His son tried to protect his father and was fatally shot in the head. LaCorte was convicted in Queens County Court for his role in organizing this and several other home invasion robberies, and in June 2012 was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison, officials said. Whitfield was arrested on March 18, 2014, for his role in the robbery. The same month Burroughs was indicted in the invasion, but was not apprehended until September in the Bronx. Both men are scheduled to be sentenced on July 29 and face up to 20 years in prison.
