Camillus man charged in connection to deadly Onondaga crash

The Camillus man arrested in connection to the deadly Onondaga crash that killed three young people was indicted Monday on charges.

Anthony Saccone, 30, was charged with three counts of second-degree murder in Onondaga County Court. The judge also increased Saccone's bail to $1 million cash or $2 million bond.

He could now face 25 years to life in prison.

Saccone was surrounded in court by his friends and family.

The court room was tense, with several security guards. Saccone kept his head down the whole time in front of the judge.

"My client still presumed innocent. I think the murder two charge I'm going to have to take a good look at. It's going to be under the depraved indifference theory," said Saccone's lawyer, William Sullivan.

The family of each victim said they were glad to see Saccone handcuffed and taken away. It's a long journey for all of them but said they are dealing with this together.

"They understand that this is a marathon, not a sprint," said Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick. "And and I've been keeping them posted and I'll continue to do so."

Saccone's charges steam from a early morning crash on Feb. 23. Multiple emergency crews responded to the scene at the intersection of Onondaga Boulevard and Onondaga Road. State police said a Chevrolet Impala was going through the intersection when it was t-boned by a GMC Arcadia SUV. State police believe the SUV had run through a red light.

All three people in the Impala died in the crash. They were Samra Osmanovic, 20, Baylie Rose, 19, and Michael Walker, 18, all of whom were current or former students at Onondaga County Community College.

Saccone is scheduled to reappear in court on May 1. The trial is scheduled for Oct. 9.
