Authorities have charged five people for the violent murder of a Camden County NJ woman in Trenton.
The fatal shooting happened during a robbery attempt in November 2016. According to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, the victim actually drove one of her eventual killers to East Trenton on the night of the homicide. The man called for a ride via Lyft, the rideshare service.
When the motor vehicle got to a Trenton neighborhood, the robbers allegedly attempted to take money at gunpoint from another passenger in the Lyft vehicle. A handgun was reportedly discharged during the robbery.
Police investigated the fatal shooting and quickly identified four suspects: a 43-year-old Trenton NJ man, a 39-year-old Trenton man, a 31-year-old Hamilton woman, and a 32-year-old man from Pennsylvania. The four suspects were then indicted on numerous charges, including first degree murder, armed robbery, and weapons offenses.
Now a fifth faces criminal charges for the murder. The fifth suspect is a 52-year-old resident of Trenton, New Jersey. He was charged while already in custody at the Camden County Jail.
