An Amityville man charged with shooting and killing a Wyandanch man last month was ordered held without bail at his arraignment Friday in a Suffolk County courtroom.

Torey Warren, 34, was captured earlier this week in Pennsylvania and was returned to Suffolk on Thursday.

He was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Desi Kingsberry, 30, who was found Sept. 29 lying in the front yard of his home on State Avenue.

Police said Warren shot Kingsberry once in the head.

Warren appeared before Judge John Toomey Jr. It was not clear if he entered a plea.

Warren, of 137 Jeatom Lane, was arrested in Pocono Pines by Suffolk police and other law enforcement agencies, including the U.S. marshals.

Kingsberry, the third-youngest of 12 siblings, had worked for a trash hauler under contract with Babylon Town. He'd had that job for the past eight years and was an aspiring rapper, his sister, Sharlon Kingsberry, 32, said in an earlier interview.

Performing under the names Dirt Bizzle and Bandanna The Great, Kingsberry had released three "mix tapes" of his music that he sold locally.

She declined to comment on her brother's killing.
