Oindo has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree criminal use of a firearm and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

He was arraigned Friday at City Court and remanded the Schenectady County Jail.

Todman, 27, was recalled by friends and colleagues as a talented painter.

An art show has been slated for July 11 at Albany Center Gallery for Todman, a Lodi, New Jersey native.

All proceeds will go to his family to continue his legacy through the Duane X Arts Foundation Duane Todman Art Scholarship.
