Accused NYS Trooper Killer is Indicted

New York State Trooper Christopher Skinner

The Florida man accused of intentionally running down New York State Police Officer Christopher Skinner May 29th on Interstate 81 near Castle Creek, killing the trooper, is now formally indicted on murder, assault, criminal mischief and reckless driving charges.

60 year old Almond Upton of Melrose appeared before a Grand Jury in Broome County Court August 6 to face charges of first degree murder, which could carry a life sentence, two counts of assault, three counts of criminal mischief and five counts of reckless driving.

Upton told reporters after he was arraigned in Town of Chenango Court, that he had entered a time warp and didn’t know what happened when Skinner was hit while conducting a traffic stop on the interstate.

Upton also allegedly hit two other vehicles before striking the trooper, causing two other serious injuries.

After hitting Trooper Skinner, authorities say  Upton got out of his pickup truck, stripped off his clothes and ran, naked into the woods where he was apprehended by authorities.
