Orange NJ Murder Suspect Captured in Newark, New Jersey

Newark NJ Murder Defense AttorneysNewark NJ police recently captured a man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Orange New Jersey that resulted in two deaths.

The shooting occurred on November 3, 2016, but law enforcement only recently captured the suspect. The victims, a 21-year-old man and his one-year-old nephew, were walking along Cleveland Avenue in Orange NJ when they were brutally gunned down. The child’s father was also injured in the shooting.

Another person present for the shooting was a 16-year-old boy who is said to be related to the other victims. He later spoke with Orange NJ detectives and told them that a masked gunman approached the family and used a handgun to fire multiple gunshots. When the victims entered their Orange NJ residence and ran upstairs, the suspect reportedly followed them inside and continued firing at them.

The suspect was eventually identified as a 28-year-old Maplewood NJ man. Newark NJ patrol cops arrested the suspect after pulling him over for a traffic stop a few days ago.

The suspect has been charged with two counts of murder and two counts of aggravated assault. If he is convicted on the most serious charges of murder, he would be subject to a potential punishment of life imprisonment in New Jersey State Prison. That’s because N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3 classifies murder as a special kind of first degree felony. While most first degree crimes carry a maximum penalty of 20 years behind bars, a murder conviction could result in a minimum penalty of 30 years in prison.

After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspect was remanded to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark. He was being held at the jail in lieu of $1 million bail.
