Police charged Joaquin A. Recinos-Garcia, a 27-year-old Yonkers resident with second-degree murder on Friday. Recinos-Garcia was remanded without bail to the county jail.

Police said Blanco was robbed of his belongings. They are still investigating why Blanco and Recinos-Garcia were in Ossining.

On Aug. 24, a woman was jogging on Route 133 at the intersection of Tavano Road and Somerstown Road when she observed a deceased Blanco slightly off the roadway.

An autopsy later determined Blanco's death was a homicide.
