Family of murder victim speaks

The family of New Hyde Park resident John Frankowski, whose body was found buried in a wooded area behind the suspect's home after having been missing for eight days, spoke to the media on March 8, 2014, after attending the arraignment of Jonathan Roman, 42, of Coram. Prosecutors say Roman, who is charged with second-degree murder, fatally strangled his 71-year-old uncle over an estate dispute. (Credit: Jim Staubitser)
