Mon, 24 Jun 2013 21:59:27 GMT — A Syracuse man is charged with murder and kidnapping in connection with a shooting on Steuben Street over the weekend. Syracuse Police say the estranged husband of a Syracuse woman killed a man who had accompanied her home because she was concerned for her safety. Police Chief Frank Fowler says 33-year-old Corey Hill was a manager at a Sam's Club where 26-year-old Tanya Alfred worked and they'd known each other for years. He says that Hill agreed to escort Alfred home from a bar early Sunday morning and was confronted at about 3 a.m. by George Alfred Jr. Investigators say Hill was shot several times and Alfred abducted his wife, eventually freeing her in Pennsylvania and returning separately to surrender to police on Monday. "He [Hill] decided to do what most gentleman of his caliber would do, to see that she gets home safely, and as a result it cost him his life," says Fowler. Alfred is being held on charges including second-degree murder and kidnapping. It wasn't initially known if he has a lawyer. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Syracuse Police.(Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.)
