NEWBURGH, N.Y. – Newburgh Police charged a man who is a fugitive from justice in Illinois with murder on Sunday, authorities said.

Cook, who told authorities he was staying with a relative in Newburgh, has an open warrant from the state of Illinois dating back to August of this year, officials said.
