Arrests made in shooting deaths of 2 students
NEWARK (AP) — A double-murder suspect from Washington and two other people have been charged in the fatal shooting of a college student in northern New Jersey.
Essex County prosecutors announced Monday that 29-year-old Ali Muhammad Brown of Seattle and two West Orange men — 19-year-old Jeremy Villagran and 18-year-old Eric Williams, were charged in the death of 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin.
The Livingston resident, who had just completed his first year at the University of Richmond, was found inside a vehicle on June 25.
Prosecutors also announced Monday that they have made an arrest in the slaying of 17-year-old Cheyanne Bond of Irvington, who was killed just days after she graduated from high school. She also was headed to college in September.
Andre Fields, a 31-year-old Irvington resident, is accused in that case.
