A 25-year-old from Atlantic City is now being charged for the murder of 18-year-old Bridgeton resident Davion Scarborough who was killed back in November of 2020.

Reportedly, 25-year-old Jerry Crawford is now on the hook charges including first-degree murder and first-degree conspiracy to commit murder. He's not alone, though. There's another man, Yusuf Waites, who has also been indicted with the same charges. Crawford, however, was already in custody only two days before the alleged murder occurred.

According to NJ.com, Crawford was being held on charges for burglary, however as a result of crowding issues along with the rise of COVID-19, he was released in late October of 2020 and ordered to parole immediately. So, if Crawford is found guilty (mind you, everyone is presumed innocent until proven otherwise in this country's court of law), that would mean that the crime was committed within days of Crawford getting released.

These charges were issued back in July, however Crawford already found himself behind bars at that point for a gun-related incident that occurred back in December of last year. NJ.com reports, however, those charges have been dropped.
