Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Victoria Afet, the 23-year-old woman who is accused of murdering 93-year-old Connie Tuori at the Skyline Apartments on James Street in Syracuse, appeared in court Thursday.

She’s charged with first-degree murder and burglary charges. A judge set her bail at $2 million. That case against Afet is pending a grand jury to decide if there’s enough evidence to go to trial.

Following her court appearance, Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputies say Afet set off a fire alarm at the Onondaga County Justice Center. She will likely face a new charge of falsely reporting an incident for that.

Afet was also being held on an unrelated assault charge. The judge remanded her with no bail.

She’s due back in court on April 19.
