AMSTERDAM, N.Y. -- The arraignment of an Amsterdam man charged with a double homicide has been postponed.
Ivan Ramos, 30, arrived at the Montgomery County Courthouse Monday morning but was sent away moments later because his public defender wasn't there. A grand jury indicted Ramos last week in connection with the March murders of William McDermott, 56, and Cheryl Goss, 46, both formerly of Amsterdam.
Ramos has been behind bars since the day of the murders for unrelated charges.
Det. Lt. Kurt Conroy said, "He was charged with two counts of murder in the first degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree. We were hopeful that it was coming. We spent a lot of time and a lot of work putting this case together."
Gross' daughter Hope Faboskay said, "I want to know why, like, why he did it. He could have hit her. He could have knocked her out. She was mad little. She was tiny. He was huge."
Gross' daughter Kelly Faboskay said, "It's been a little closure, but not as much because my is never gonna come back. She's gone, and he's alive, he can still live, and my mom can't."
Ramos will be back in court Tuesday morning for his rescheduled arraignment.
