3 Trenton Men Charged In Shooting Of Musician
Authorities say three New Jersey men are being charged in the fatal shooting of a musician during a botched robbery outside Philadelphia.
The arrests announced Friday by the Bucks County district attorney mean there are now five people accused in the death of 56-year-old Danny DeGennaro.
Trenton residents Breon Powell, Jermaine Jackson and Kazair Gist face charges including murder and robbery. It was unclear if they had lawyers.
According to court documents, Jackson told his alleged accomplices that DeGennaro owed him money. District Attorney David Heckler says investigators don’t know if that’s true.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer Heckler says police also don’t know which suspect shot DeGennaro at his house in Levittown on Dec. 28.
DeGennaro had performed with musicians including Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead.
