POLICE & COURTS - Southern Tier

Little Valley pedestrian is killed on expressway

MAYVILLE -- A Little Valley man was killed shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday while walking west along the Southern Tier Expressway near the Dutch Hollow Road overpass.

Scott Raub, 38, was hit by a van driven by William Dart, 58, of Mayville, Chautauqua County sheriff's deputies said. Dart, who was not charged, said he did not see the victim, deputies said.

Mohomed, who surrendered three days after the slaying, never said why he and Abdi argued, prosecutor James F. Bargnesi said. Buscaglia told Mohomed, who will be sentenced Jan. 18, that he faces up to 15 years in prison.

Court officials said Abdi served a brief jail term for stabbing a another man, also a native of Somalia, with a steak knife as the man slept in their flat.
