Saunders Guilty On All Charges In Mygatt Street Murder

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Broome County Jury has found 26-year-old Nigel Saunders guilty on all charges in the death of 23-year-old Jordan Dordell at a Mygatt Street home in November of 2013.

Saunders and 22-year-old Julian Talamantez III, who previously pleaded guilty to murder and attempted murder charges, were accused of breaking in to the Mygatt Street home of Dordell and his 19 year-old fiancee while they slept on November 4th of 2013.  The two men demanded drugs and money before stabbing Dordell to death and critically injuring and sexually abusing the woman who was pregnant at the time.

The two men then set the home ablaze before fleeing the scene in Dordell’s pickup truck.  The woman was able to break out a basement window to escape the home and seek help.

Saunders and Talamentez were taken into custody in Binghamton after police discovered the stolen truck in Johnson City.

Saunders was found guilty of two counts of second degree murder, first degree robbery, first degree burglary, and second degree assault. He could be sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison.

Talamentez was sentenced to 25 years to life for his murder charge and 15 to life for the attempted murder count.
