Bridgeton Man Convicted in Death of 9-Year-Old Girl
9-year-old Jennifer Trejo of Bridgeton (Cumberland County) was killed in her bed when a stray bullet struck her and lodged into her liver.
NJ.com reports that a 21-year-old was just convicted in the crime. He didn't act alone; the co-defendants are all awaiting trial. Leroy Frazier III faced multiple charges including first-degree attempted murder and first degree aggravated manslaughter.
The goal, reportedly, wasn't the home the bullet unfortunately found its way into. Surveillance video shows shots fired into a crowd in front of another house on the same street as the Trejo home.
Frazier could be facing life in prison.
