New Charges Related to Pimento Killing

LYNDONVILLE- Two more Lyndonville residents are facing drug and gun charges in an investigation related to the homicide last year of 37-year-old Waterford man Michael Pimento.



Alicia Whitcomb, 30 and Brandon Darling, also 30, were named this week in a newly unsealed indictment. They join four other people already charged with dealing drugs out of apartment 2 at 1372 Back Center Road in Lyndonville last year. The others include Whitcomb's sister, Krystal, and father, Shawn, as well Michael Anthony Hayes, Sr., and John Welch.

Though nobody has yet been charged with killing Pimento, U.S. District Attorney Christina Nolan wrote in the indictment "Both Krystal and Shawn were involved in the death of Michael Pimento."

Whitcomb and Darling were both arraigned at the U.S. District Court in Burlington.
