POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A Poughkeepsie man has been arrested and charged with killing Fannie Gumbinger, 99, in her home this past week.
Poughkeepsie City Police said Tyrek Rogers, 20, was arrested at 11 p.m. Friday and charged with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary in connection with the death of the elderly woman, who was found in her home at 22 Underhill Ave. Wednesday morning.
Police said as a result of the investigation, Rogers has also been identified as a suspect in several recent burglaries in the city, including a Lockerman Avenue break-in that occurred on Wednesday, Aug. 21.
Additional details in the case were expected to be released by authorities on Monday.
Poughkeepsie police Detective Lt. Edward Freer said an autopsy Thursday determined Gumbinger died of multiple injuries in the home where shed lived alone since her husband died in 2007. Her body was found Wednesday morning after a caretaker called authorities to report suspicions something was wrong at the house.
Freer said 911 dispatch received a call Wednesday at about 7 a.m. from Gumbingers caretaker, who reported suspicious circumstances at the home that alarmed her and caused her to call police.
He said responding officers found Gumbinger dead inside.
A neighbor, Jane Bunt, of 16 Underhill Ave., who said she has lived in the neighborhood for nearly 38 years, described the neighborhood as always peaceful. She said that, until now, the only crime-related concerns were related to car break-ins. She said neighbors had been apprehensive since the homicide report.

Libards and the racist blacks wet their panties at the thought of a whitey (even a light Hispanic) actually not taking the s**t and dealing a death blow. No, can't do that.
Mesta, please put me on this ping list. Thanks.

Someone call the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayres. Looks like Carlton went seriously bad.
Or was he a drug dealer, AKA entrepreneur with a girlsfriend and 10 kids WE SUPPORT?
Right. What’s with these punks jumping old people and killing them? Seems to me if they want to show their stones they would take on someone a bit more challenging.....
That’s why I’m all for abortion for certain people this flea would have been flushed and our society would have one less cancer.
Young black men: 3% of the population. 50% of murders.
Was the perp wearing his "colors" ?
His grandmother said he was a good boy!
They begin with the fish in the barrel, just to get a ‘feel’ for it and work their way up before bragging rights are appropriate.
I hear ya...only feet first!
That when things don’t end like he/they planned. A/k/a, Whitey defends him/her self.
