(Updated Saturday morning)

NEW YORK (AP) — A man accused of participating in a gunbattle that left an aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo mortally wounded in the hours before Brooklyn's West Indian Day Parade was arraigned on a murder charge Friday, and prosecutors said more arrests are expected.

Carey Gabay was shot in the head in September during a festival called J'Ouvert in which bands play West Indian music and people dance in the streets. The 43-year-old lawyer was a first deputy general counsel at the Empire State Development Corp.

In 1979, the body of a girl was found in a cornfield in Caledonia. For 35 years, her identity, and her killer, remained a mystery.

Half the mystery was solved in January 2015, when the girl was identified as Tammy Jo Alexander. The other half remains unsolved, but a new podcast hopes to find some answers.

Stumping for his wife in Rochester and across New York, former President Bill Clinton told voters that Hillary Clinton “was there for you, you need to be there for her.” Voters across New York decided to be there for her on Tuesday.

The AP declared Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton the winner in the New York Democratic primary, a win that inches the former New York senator closer to clinching the Democratic presidential nomination.
