MAPLE SHADE — A Clementon resident was arrested Monday and charged in the fatal shooting of a man at an apartment complex in this township in January, the third of four homicides that have taken place at the Fox Meadow Apartments since 2017.

It was there on Jan. 16, a release from the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said Tuesday, that Ezekiel Sanders Jr., 32, was found struck by gunshots in the arm and chest, and was later pronounced dead at Jefferson Hospital in Cherry Hill.

Burlington County prosecutors said the investigation into Sanders' death is still ongoing.
