Tramaine Brown was one of more than a dozen people charged after a year-long FBI investigation into drug trafficking in Riverhead area in 2018, resulting in early morning raids across town that November.
Police charged Daniel Hughes, 38, with assault in the second degree. Hughes punched Sapiane, 65, in the head on Jan. 2, police said. Sapiane died Jan. 5 as a result of injuries sustained in the assault.
“We're looking for answers and I’m not going to rest until we have them," said Gary Sapiane of North Haven, whose brother Wayne, 65, died of a massive cerebral hemorrhage after being struck in the head by an assailant Thursday afternoon.
