Former Hudson Valley Resident Extradited From Florida To Face Murder Charge

A former area resident has been extradited from Florida and is facing murder and weapon charges dating back to an incident in Yonkers more than two years ago.

Anthony Burton - also known as David Burton and Anthony Faseoff - was arraigned by a Westchester County grand jury for his role in the fatal shooting of a man in Yonkers in April 2016. He was returned from Pensacola to his former home on Wednesday, Nov. 28 and has been remanded into custody.

Prosecutors have alleged that shortly after midnight on April 30, 2016, Burton pulled a handgun and fired three shots outside a building on Waverly Street. The bullets struck his victim in the abdomen, back and hip. The victim was found semi-conscious in the street by responding Yonkers police officers.

The victim was transported to Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx, where he stayed for several days until he died on June 2 from his injuries.

A grand jury indicted Burton earlier this year, and investigators from the Yonkers Police Department began their search for him. Burton was ultimately found at the Queen Mary Inn in Pensacola, where he was arrested on local charges that include contributing to the delinquency of a minor, resisting arrest, false personation and possession of a controlled substance.

Burton, 37, has been charged in Westchester with second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, Dec. 12.
