Orange County Man Indicted Again for Murder of Ramapo Rape Suspect

An Orange County man who was accused of killing a Rockland man suspected of rape in Ramapo, has been indicted by a grand jury. David Carlson of Sparrowbush was accused of shooting Norris Acosta-Sanchez in 2013, while allegedly defending himself when the two struggled for a shotgun on Carlson’s property. Carlson stated that he was attempting to turn Acosta-Sanchez into police after he had learned of the rape charges against the man. The case had been thrown out by a judge in November, who stated that the evidence presented by prosecutors was compromised. On Thursday Carlson was indicted once again on charges of second-degree murder, and first and second-degree manslaughter. He will be arraigned on March 6.
