Antonio Martin-Brown, 19

Buffalo Teen Arrested In Murder Of Gay Kenmore Man

Buffalo — Kenmore police today announced the arrest of Antonio Martin-Brown, 19, of Buffalo, in the May 19 slaying of Vincent J. "Jim" Cottone, 62, the owner of Malone’s Bar & Grill on Delaware Avenue.

Cottone, who has been identified by several friends as a gay man, was found dead at his Kenmore, New York home on May 19.

Police Chief Peter J. Breitnauer said Martin-Brown had no connection to the bar but was acquainted with Cottone. Breitnauer would not discuss any other details about the arrest including a possible motive.

Martin-Brown was the subject of a missing person report that was publicized in Buffalo area media in April of 2012.

Martin-Brown faces a second-degree murder charge in the killing of Cottone. He was arraigned this morning in Kenmore Village Court and sent to the Erie County Holding Center without bail, police said.

Breitnauer lauded the Kenmore Police detective bureau, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office and Erie County Central Police Services Forensic Laboratory for police work that led to the arrest. —Staff
