Newark Man Sentenced to 75 Years For Club Shooting
A New Jersey man who killed one man and critically wounded another outside an Irvington nightclub two years ago has been sentenced to 75 years in state prison.
Twenty-six-year-old Alquan White of Newark must serve 59 years of the term imposed Monday before becoming being eligible for parole. He was convicted earlier this year in the shooting death of 42-year-old Bryon Lockett of Newark outside Club Marlos in Irvington in October 2009.
Essex County prosecutors had sought a life sentence for White, noting his long criminal history. They also noted that he threw a cup of water on jurors and threatened the judge during his trial, where he was found guilty of murder, aggravated assault and weapons offenses.
