Trial Resumes In Lakewood Cop-Killing Case

A Lakewood woman has testified that a man on trial for killing a police officer had vowed to do just that if faced with the prospect of going to jail.

Tanya Cook Peteete, whose son is friends with 20-year-old Jahmell Crockam, recalled a conversation she had with Crockam after he walked out early on a December 2010 court date.

Cook Peteete advised Crockam to return to court before a warrant was issued for his arrest. She says he told her that if he goes to jail, it would be for killing a police officer, not for anything minor.

Ocean County prosecutors say Crockam gunned down Lakewood Patrolman Christopher Matlosz  on Jan. 14, 2011. But Crockam’s lawyer says police arrested the wrong man.
