A one day trial ended with a local man being found guilty of murder.

An Atlantic Country jury found Gregory J. Gibbs, 37, of Atlantic City, guilty of the murder of Chikki Smith, 33, of Pleasantville. The murder occurred December 3, 2012, in a parking lot behind a bar in Pleasantville. Gibbs was also found guilty of three weapons violations.

According to Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain,

Just before midnight on Dec. 3, 2012, Pleasantville Police responded to Main Street
after receiving a 9-1-1 report of shots fired. Upon arrival, police discovered the body of
Chikki Smith in the parking lot behind Sam’s Rialto Bar & Grill at 18 South Main Street,
the victim of multiple gunshot wounds.
A homicide investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit
and the Pleasantville Police Department led to Gibbs’ arrest one month later. Gibbs
was indicted for the murder in July 2013.
Today, after a one-day trial before Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Michael Donio,
Gibbs was found guilty by the jury of murder, possession of a firearm for an unlawful
purpose, unlawful possession of a handgun, and certain persons not to have firearms.
The murder conviction carries a sentence of life imprisonment in State Prison with a
minimum of 30 years without parole. Pursuant to the No Early Release Act (NERA),
85% of the sentence must be served before becoming eligible for parole.
The three weapons possession charges are 2nd degree crimes that carry potential
penalties of 5-10 years imprisonment
