Navy recruiter faces another charge in murder plot

Brandon McPherson

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (AP) — A U.S. Navy recruiter in upstate New York is facing additional charges months after he was accused of plotting to have someone killed.

State police say 30-year-old Brandon McPherson was arrested on an additional count of second-degree conspiracy after investigators say a co-conspirator admitted to agreeing with him to kill someone.

McPherson was initially charged last December with conspiring with another person to commit murder. No other details of the alleged plot have been released.

McPherson has been released from the Steuben (stoo-BEHN’) County Jail after posting $10,000 cash bail.

Troopers say McPherson is currently on active duty with the Navy. He was previously assigned to the recruiting office at the Arnot Mall in Horseheads.

It couldn’t be learned from prosecutors Monday if McPherson has a lawyer.
