Bronx News Roundup, Dec. 28

Police have arrested a man in connection with the murder of Betty Williams, a Bronx woman whose body was found stuffed inside a suitcase on a Harlem Street on Dec. 22. Hassan Malik has confessed to the crime, but claims Williams attacked him first, the police say. 

Police are still hunting for the boyfriend of a Kingsbridge Heights woman who was murdered back in August. Consumed by a jealous rage, Hector Ramirez allegedly stabbed Elia Zamora to death as their young son looked on. The case was recently featured on America's Most Wanted.

A 20-year-old Harlem man was shot dead in Williamsbridge on Sunday night.

PS 83 recently donated 500 lbs of food to the 49th Precinct's annual food drive.

Syracuse and Kansas State are gearing up for the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl football game at Yankee Stadium this Thursday. Syracuse's coach, Doug Marrone, grew up in the Bronx and attended Lehman High School, so the game is a homecoming of sorts. Yankees president Randy Levine says the match-up could boost the city's economy by $30 million.

Critics of the Croton Water Filtration Plant being built in Van Cortlandt Park say they're not surprised by allegations of corruption. One contractor plead guilty to fraud last month. Another is under investigation.

Riverdale (and everywhere else for that matter) was hit hard by Sunday's snowstorm, as these photos on  the Riverdale Press' website illustrate. Click here for photos BxNN readers sent in. State Sen. Ruben Diaz, Sr., meanwhile, has slammed Mayor Bloomberg and the city's lacklustre clean-up effort.
