CAMDEN, N.J. — A man accused in a deadly shooting at a New Jersey motel following a party brawl has been indicted on murder charges.

Camden County prosecutors say 22-year-old Kevin Fentress also faces two counts of aggravated assault and two weapons charges in the indictment handed by a county grand jury.

The charges against the Burlington City man stem from a February 2016 shooting in Cherry Hill that left a 17-year-old Camden boy dead and a 20-year-old Willingboro man wounded.

Authorities say the pair were shot in a car shortly after a fight broke out during a party being held in one of the motel rooms. A woman in the car was also injured when she was struck by shattered glass.

It wasn’t known Saturday if Fentress has retained an attorney.
