FONDA - An Amsterdam man charged in the murders of two people in March was found guilty Wednesday in an unrelated home invasion at Montgomery County Court, according to the office of Montgomery County District Attorney James "Jed" Conboy.

Ivan Ramos, 30, of 51 Milton Ave., was found guilty Wednesday of first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary in connection with a Nov. 29 incident at a Guy Park Avenue apartment.

Amsterdam police said in November that two male suspects entered the residence through a backdoor and were armed with a shotgun, taking an X-box 360 game console, a wireless internet router and money before fleeing through the back. One resident was injured when he fled the apartment through a window and suffered facial lacerations.

According to police, Ramos was arrested in connection with the home invasion at 2:15 a.m. Nov. 29 at 210 Guy Park Ave.

No information was given on the other suspect.

Because of a prior felony conviction, Conboy said, Ramos can receive a minimum of 10 years in prison.

Conboy said sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 7 at 9:30 a.m.

Other charges

Ramos was charged in September with the murders of William McDermott and Cheryl Goss, who were found stabbed to death in an apartment on Locust Avenue.

Ramos will go to trial in that case Jan. 22, Conboy said.

Ramos also is awaiting trial on another robbery case, where authorities said he and an unidentified accomplice allegedly broke into a home and pistol whipped the occupants before stealing a laptop.

Ramos is currently serving a three-year prison sentence for stealing a piece of construction equipment in February.
