There has been a fourth arrest after police found a man brutally murdered several months ago. A 17-year-old boy, who authorities did not publicly name, was taken into custody down in McDonough, Georgia on Friday for allegedly helping kill Juan Jose Gotay, 38, all the way up in Chemung County, New York, New York State Police reportedly said.
According to WETM, the teen was arraigned on charges including murder with intent, kidnapping, assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, assault with intent causing disfigurement, and assault with intent to injure with a weapon. Thomas Bovaird, 21, Eddie Marte, 25, and Malik Weems, 18, were previously indicted for Gotay’s horrific death.

What Gotay allegedly went through was clear torture. He was shot in the shoulder and leg, stuck in his eyes by a pointed instrument, sustained burns to his ears and buttocks, sustained mutilation to his tongue, was kicked and beaten, and sustained broken ribs and fingers, authorities reportedly said. The kidnappers brought him still alive to Potter County, Pennsylvania, where he was found dead along Route 6 in April 2021, authorities said.
Marte and Weems were indicted in New York for charges including first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping, and first-degree assault. They are also charged separately for allegedly kidnapping a man named Joseph Waters in April 2021, holding him for 12 hours to bilk ransom money.
Bovaird, who is only charged in Gotay’s death, faces counts of first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree assault, and second-degree assault.

They should all HANG! . . . and make an EXAMPLE out of them. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump And His Allies 2020 – MAGA (WE’RE NOT going away!).
Due to them what they did to that poor man but make it five times as worse they are nothing but scum of the earth
Give them all the death penalty! Torturing this man and none of them have enough decency to stop it. I would guess nobody would miss any of them anyway, apparently raised by animals.
Justice should be swift and sure!
