CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Camden 19-year-old will be tried as an adult in the slaying of a city man who was found shot to death two years ago in a car that had crashed into a fence.
Camden County prosecutors say Fernando Rivera was arraigned Friday on a murder charge after a judge agreed to move his case to adult court. His bail was set at $1 million.
Prosecutors say Rivera was 17 when William Custis IV was killed during an August 2013 robbery.
Custis was found in the driver’s seat of the car. Prosecutors say Rivera and another Camden man, 24-year-old Wilbert Shiveley, were passengers in the vehicle when it crashed in the area of Louis Street and Atlantic Avenue in Camden.
Shiveley is also charged with murder.
This story has been corrected to fix the spelling of Shiveley in the final sentence.
