South Carolina Woman Charged with Attempted Murder, Arrested in Newark, NJ

Newark NJ Attempted Murder SuspectEssex County law enforcement recently captured a woman who has been charged with attempted murder in South Carolina.

According to authorities, the suspect fired a gunshot at a man on February 1. The shooting left the victim with significant wounds but did not prove fatal.

The suspect reportedly fled South Carolina after the shooting incident. Federal authorities with the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force then tracked the suspect down in Newark, NJ.

The suspect was arrested as she walked out of a coffee shop located near Broad Street and Thomas Street in Newark, NJ. Members of the federal task force and the Essex County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the apprehension of the suspect.

The suspect, a 22-year-old woman from Lancaster, South Carolina, faces charges for attempted murder. Although the suspect is going to be subject to severe criminal penalties in SC, she would have been subject to equally severe penalties if she was charged in New Jersey. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:5-4, anyone convicted of attempted murder or conspiracy to commit murder can potentially be sentenced to 10-30 years in NJ State Prison.

After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspect was taken to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, New Jersey. She was being held there until authorities could extradite her to South Carolina.
