Second suspect arraigned on murder charges in Troy homicide


RENSSELAER, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A second suspect was arraigned Friday morning on second degree murder charges in connection with the homicide of 19-year-old Beyonce Wint in Lansingburg in September.

Antwaun Twitty, 30, of Burlington, Vermont appeared in Rensselaer County Supreme Court late Friday morning.

Twitty pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. He was taken into custody earlier this week at Boston’s Logan Airport and extradited back to New York.

Police are still looking for a third suspect in connection with Wint’s death. Troy Police say she was shot execution style in the middle of 4th Avenue and 111th Street.

Twitty was remanded to the jail without bail.

Twitty may retain private council, but his conflict defender stood by by him today said they would have that conversation at a later time.

“This is not the place to have that conversation. It’s crowded, there’s way too many prisoners around, and too many guards around,” he said. “So, I will have this conversation with him in private next week and strategize his defense from there.”

Twitty’s next court appearance is scheduled for February.
