Charges have been upgraded against the Plattsburgh man accused of gunning down his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.
Tony Pavone, 52, was indicted Friday morning on two counts of first-degree murder. Back in January police say he shot his ex-girlfriend Patricia Howard and Timothy Carter to death at Carter's home in Dannemora. Howard was shot in the head and chest. Carter was shot twice-- once in each shoulder.
"Evidence was presented to the grand jury, and they determined the two homicides occurred in one continuous act. So they determined this fell under the appellate of murder in the first-degree," Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie explained.
If convicted, Pavone could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
