GLOVERSVILLE, NY – On Monday a man was indicted and arraigned in Fulton County Court on charges related to his role in the robbery and assault of Brian Morrison.
In July 2010, Morrison was found stabbed to death on the lawn of a Gloversville home. The home, located on Bleecker Street, was two miles away from where he lived. Prior to his death on the same day, Morrison was robbed and assaulted in an unrelated incident.
Derrick Paul, 29, of St. Johnsville, is being charged for his role in the robbery that happened prior to the fatal incident. He is accused of forcibly stealing Morrison's wallet and punching him in the jaw, rendering him unconscious as a result. Paul allegedly burned the wallet, destroying the evidence that he stole it.
He is not being charged in the homicide, officials say.
Paul is accused of Robbery 2nd Degree, a Class C Felony, Robbery 3rd Degree, a Class D Felony, Assault 2nd Degree, a Class D Felony, Assault 3rd Degree, A Class A Misdemeanor, and Tampering with Physical Evidence, a Class E Felony.
Paul was remanded to the Fulton County Correction Facility without bail and will reappear in Fulton County Court on Tuesday, July 10.
The investigation into the death of Morrison remains ongoing with the Gloversville Police Department. District Attorney Louise Sira states, "I know it brings a measure of comfort to Mr. Morrison's family that those who played a role in committing crimes against him before his death are being brought to justice."
Morrison was a long-time employee of the Gloversville Enlarged School District.
Anyone with information about this case should contact Gloversville Police Captain Anthony Clay at (518) 773-4513.
