      MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. (AP)  -- A suburban New York police officer =
accused of killing a homeless immigrant has resigned from the force.

      Mount Kisco Officer George Bubaris, who had been suspended without =
pay since September, put in his papers on Friday and the village board =
accepted them Monday night, said village attorney Whitney Singleton.

      Bubaris, 31, is fighting a manslaughter charge in the April death =
of Rene Perez, 48. Perez was found dying on the side of a road in =
Bedford, which borders Mount Kisco. He had a long history of drunkenness =
and arrests in both towns, and had called Mount Kisco police an hour =
earlier from a coin laundry.

      Prosecutors say that Bubaris drove Perez to an out-of-the-way =
area, ``inflicted blunt force trauma to Perez's abdomen'' and left him =
to die.

      Bubaris, who has pleaded innocent, is next due in court on =
Thursday. He is expected to be represented by a new attorney, Andrew =
Quinn, who has replaced Ed Hayes. A call to Quinn was not immediately =
returned.
