STAMFORD — A fugitive arrested in Stamford has been extradited back to New York, where he will face charges for killing a man on New Year's Eve, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Juan Nico Morales, 20, of New York had been apprehended in his girlfriend's Stamford apartment last week when Stamford Police and U.S. Marshals executed a raid at 66 Smith St. where he was staying, according to police.
He waived extradition when he appeared in court on Monday, and the Stamford Advocate reported that he was arraigned Tuesday at Brooklyn Criminal Court. He has been charged with second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a firearm, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Police said that Morales had been kicked out of a New Year's Eve party in Brooklyn and not let back in. He came back with a gun and fired through a window, hitting one man in the face, according to police. He later died from the wound, police said.
After appearing in court this week, Morales was remanded without bond, the Stamford Advocate said.
