2 men charged with violent crime in New Jersey

A recent shooting led to the arrest of two local men. The pair, both from New Jersey, were arrested and charged for the violent crime. The slain man was found unresponsive outside of an apartment, and the police investigation caused them to pursue the pair as suspects. 

In early March, police responded to a 911 call that led to the discovery of a man who was shot and unresponsive. He was pronounced dead shortly after. A spokesman for the local prosecutor revealed that the two men were identified as suspects and located at a nearby hotel where they were apparently residing. Police searched the hotel room on the night of the murder and located an alleged amount of heroin and cocaine. 

The men had apparently relocated to another hotel, and when they were found, police claimed that heroin and cocaine were also in their possession. Both men had been arrested and been to jail previously for drug charges. This time, they were charged for the controlled substance violations, as well as murder and unlawful firearm possession.

Since the New Jersey men are facing repeat charges, it is likely that the penalties for the drug charges they face this time will be more severe. In the case of the violent crime, a murder charge carries heavy penalties should they be convicted. However, it will rest upon the prosecution to prove the case. Individuals who face criminal charges have the right to defend themselves, and many choose to do so with the aid of an experienced attorney who can help build a strong defense against allegations of crime.
