Newark NJ Man Indicted for Murder, Accused of Fatal Shooting at Housing Complex

Newark New Jersey Murder SuspectA Newark NJ man was recently indicted for allegedly committing a murder at a city housing complex.

According to authorities, the suspect shot and killed another person at the Stephen Crane Housing Complex, which is located on North 6th Street in Newark, New Jersey. The shooting occurred around noon on April 28, 2015.

Police believe that the 30-year-old suspect and the 32-year-old victim got into a fistfight that precipitated the killing. After some bystanders broke up the altercation, the suspect allegedly left and got a handgun.

When the suspect returned to the scene of the fight, he allegedly shot the suspect.

The suspect was later arrested and charged with a number of crimes, including first degree murder, second degree unlawful possession of a handgun, and second degree possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose.

Now the suspect has been indicted by an Essex County grand jury.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the first degree murder charges, he would be subject to severe penalties. Murder is the most serious crime in the NJ Criminal Code. A conviction for first degree murder could lead to life imprisonment, with a minimum mandatory term of imprisonment of 30 years in New Jersey State Prison.

While the suspect awaits arraignment in September, he is being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark NJ on a massive $1 million bail amount.
