Arrest in Poker Slaying


An arrest has been made in connection with the robbery of a New York City underground poker club earlier this month that left one poker patron dead.

According to media reports, William Delvalle, 35, of New York City, was arrested by police Friday and charged with robbery and murder in connection with the Nov. 2 armed robbery at the illegal Manhattan poker club in which Frank DeSena, 55, of Wayne, N.J., a=A0 poker player at the club, was shot. DeSena died shortly after at a nearby hospital.

Police allege Delvalle was one of several gun-toting bandits who robbed the poker club and made off with about $100,000, but don’t believe he was the bandit who shot DeSena, media reports said.

That’s why Delvalle is only charged with second-degree murder, not first-degree murder, the reports said.

Amazingly, after being charged, Delvalle was freed without bail, because a grand jury had neglected to indict him, the reports said.

The charges remain, however, and Delvalle will be re-arrested as soon as the indictment is made, the reports said.

Meanwhile, police continue searching for the other bandits, including the killer, the reports said.
