A Hudson Valley man was indicted on charges that he murdered his girlfriend.

Friday, an Ulster County Grand Jury handed up an indictment charging 41-year-old Karon Bowden, of Saugerties with 2nd-degree murder and 2nd-degree criminal possession with a weapon, felonies.

Bowden is accused of intentionally killing Amy Louise Burger. Police found the 24-year-old deceased from an apparent gunshot wound on the floor of her Saugerties home on May 31.

“The quest to dominate another human being is at the root of most domestic violence,” Ulster County District Attorney, Holley Carnright stated. “Causing death is the ultimate act of power and control over another person. It is tragic that Ms. Burger lost her life to a man she once loved and trusted.”
