Indictment: 2 Trenton residents face murder, weapons charges stemming from fatal shooting


TRENTON, New Jersey — Two Trenton residents have been indicted on murder charges stemming from the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man.

Mercer County prosecutors say 23-year-old Kareen McNeil and 17-year-old Tahj Laws also face weapons charges in the indictment that was recently handed up by a county grand jury.

The charges stem from the May 2013 shooting death of Devahje Bing.

Police officers responding to reports of shots fired found Bing, who had been shot several times in his upper torso. He was taken to a hospital, but was pronounced dead there a short time later.

The shooting was captured by the video surveillance system of a nearby apartment complex.

McNeil remains jailed on $500,000 bail, while Laws is being held on $1million bail.
