NJ Corrections Officer Accused of Impeding Slay Probe

Prosecutors say a state corrections officer lied to investigators about a fatal shooting in Camden last week and didn’t disclose information about evidence tampering at the scene.

Thirty-three-year-old Rickey Muse of Camden turned himself in Wednesday after being charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution.

Camden County prosecutors say Muse didn’t report the July 11 shooting, which left a 17-year-old boy dead and two others wounded, and gave investigators false information about it. They also say he didn’t prevent the removal of shell casings from the scene or tell police about it.

A corrections officer for six years, Muse most recently was assigned to the central reception and assignment facility in Trenton. A telephone number for Muse couldn’t be located Wednesday, and it’s not known if he’s retained a lawyer.
