A Florida man is being charged with one count of first degree murder in the death of New York State Trooper Christopher Skinner.

Just after noon on Thursday, Skinner was making a traffic stop on I-81 in Broome County when a pickup truck being driven by Almond Upton, 60 struck and killed him.

State Police say Upton allegedly changed lanes and hit Trooper Skinner intentionally before side-swiping the car that was being pulled over.
