Man arraigned in murder of Albany community advocate

The man charged with murder in connection with the death of 27-year-old Dominique Eley appeared for arraignment Monday in Albany County Court.

Tyshaun Purvis, 31, is now facing one count of murder in the second-degree for Eley’s murder. He is also facing weapon and drug charges.

Eley was an entrepreneur and community advocate. She died after being shot last month in broad daylight on North Pearl Street.

Purvis is due back in court on September 16.
