A 33-year-old man from Cumberland County was sentenced to 20 years in New Jersey state prison in connection with a shooting death, authorities said.

Raheem Jacobs, of Bridgeton, was sentenced Friday, Aug. 5 in connection with the Aug. 11, 2015 homicide of Keon Butler, also of Bridgeton, according to Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae.

A Cumberland County jury previously returned a guilty verdict on May 26 for second-degree reckless manslaughter following a two-and-a-half-week trial. 

The sentence is also subject to the No Early Release Act requiring the defendant to serve 85% of the sentence imposed, which is equal to 17 years, before being eligible for parole. He must also serve three years on parole after his release from prison.

Restitution in the amount of $7,430 was also ordered to be paid as reimbursement for the victim’s funeral expenses.

The homicide occurred while Keon Butler was driving a minivan near the intersection of North Laurel and Myrtle Streets in Bridgeton. Keon Butler suffered a single gunshot wound to the head which came from a vehicle that had been following and pursuing him. Raheem Jacobs was arrested in October 2015 following a joint investigation by the Bridgeton Police Department and the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office.

Man Kidnaps, Sexually Abuses Mentally Impaired Paterson Woman, Shoves Her From Car: Authorities

A Kearny man kidnapped a mentally incapacitated Paterson woman he’d met online, had sex with her in his car, a nearby park and his apartment, then shoved her out of the vehicle when he realized her family was following him, authorities charged.

A four-month manhunt ended when Horus G. Nunez-Velazquez, 35, was captured in Pennsylvania, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim M. Baycora said in a joint announcement on Friday.

Nunez-Velazquez “met the (32-year-old) woman online, picked her up from her residence and took her to a nearby park and subsequently to his apartment,” Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim M. Baycora said in a joint announcement.

NunezVelazquez then “drove the woman back to her home and shoved her out of his vehicle when he noticed he was being followed by the woman’s family,” they said.

The girl’s mother reported her missing before they were able to track her down, authorities said.

The victim, during a subsequent interview with detectives, “disclosed numerous sexual acts with Nunez-Velazquez in a park, in his car and in his apartment,” Valdes and Baycora said.

Authorities in Pennsylvania captured Nunez-Velazquez, who was then extradited back to New Jersey.

He was charged with kidnapping, multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual contact and refusing to allow a biological sample to be drawn, then was brought to the Passaic County Jail.

A Superior Court judge in Paterson refused to release Nunez-Velazquez, ordering that he remain held in the county jail pending trial following a hearing on Thursday.
