Newark Police Searching for Suspects in Unrelated Murders

Newark NJ Homicide LawyersPolice are investigating two fatal stabbings in Newark’s East Ward and West Ward.

According to authorities, the killings happened within a 24-hour time period in Newark, New Jersey.

The first murder reportedly occurred in the West Ward. Prosecutors said that the 24-year-old victim was killed by gunfire while walking just a few feet away from his residence.

A number of individuals who identified themselves as the victim’s friends spoke with police and provided details about the victim’s death.

The second murder reportedly occurred the following day at an apartment building located on the 100 block of Flemming Avenue in Newark, NJ.

Newark police officers were called to the second-floor apartment after receiving a phone call about a domestic complaint. When police got to the scene, they found the 41-year-old victim lying on his bed.

The victim, who had sustained a deep stab wound, was rushed to Rutgers University Hospital. Unfortunately, doctors were unable to save the victim; he later died as a result of his injuries.
Officials with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office later confirmed that the second stabbing was a homicide.

The Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office are actively investigating both killings. At this time, authorities have yet to identify any suspects in the murders.

If investigators are eventually able to identify a suspect in either case, serious criminal charges would likely follow. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, purposefully or knowingly causing the death of another is classified as a first degree felony. A conviction for first degree murder in New Jersey could result in life imprisonment behind bars, with a minimum term of incarceration of 30 years in NJ State Prison.
