Daniels, also known as Tony Daniels, Tony Ziegler and “Zig,” of Buffalo has been arraigned before Erie County Court Judge Sheila A. DiTullio on an indictment charging him with one count of Murder in the Second Degree, a Class “A-1” felony.

It is alleged that on July 29, 2020, at approximately 8:30 p.m., the defendant stabbed 64-year-old Daryl Carter in the vicinity of East Ferry Street and Wohlers Avenue. The victim died at the scene.

A return court date has not been scheduled at this time. He remains held without bail.

As are all persons accused of a crime, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
