A local man has been indicted 16-years after a Hudson Valley man was found murdered inside his home.

On Monday, 40-year-old Felipe Campos of Middletown was arraigned on an indictment charging him with murder, in connection with the 2003 stabbing death of a man in the Town of Warwick. The case was presented to an Orange County Grand Jury, which indicted Campos for one count of murder.

In late February, Campos was arrested for the murder of James Keating of Warwick by New York State Police. The indictment alleges Campos intentionally caused the death of Keating sometime between February 2, 2003, and February 3, 2003.

Keating was found stabbed multiple times in his town of Warwick home in February 2003. Following what police describe as an extensive 16-year investigation Campos was identified as a suspect in the Keating murder.

“It is important that law enforcement never cease looking for additional ways to solve crimes, particularly those which involve the loss of life,” Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler said. “I thank the New York State Police and the Town of Warwick Police for their untiring efforts to solve this particularly brutal homicide.

Campos was sent to Orange County jail on $1 million cash bail or $2 million bond.
