NEWBURGH - An Orange County mother says she has a new hope for justice after an arrest in the slaying of her son.

Tyler Castro, 22, was charged Wednesday in the murder of 18-year-old Keyshan Gayle. The victim’s mother, Jennifer Bediak, says she can now begin to heal.

"I just praise God. I knew this day was coming, I just had to be patient," she says.

The victim’s cousins, known as the "Zachary Boys," were both killed three years apart on the same Newburgh block.

Gayle's alleged killer is being held in the Orange County Jail and is expected to be indicted next week.

Police have not released a motive and say it is not clear if Gayle was the intended target.
