NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Two men have pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges stemming from a shooting at a northern New Jersey home last summer that left one man dead and three others wounded.
Eighteen-year-old Lewis Williams and 22-year-old Isaiah Hutchins entered their pleas Monday during a brief court hearing. Each man remains jailed on $400,000 bail.
Essex County prosecutors say 22-year-old Ahmad Crudup was killed in the July 5 shooting in East Orange. They say it stemmed from a social media feud involving Hutchins and one of the other shooting victims, who authorities say was the target.
Authorities say Williams and Hutchins were riding in a car when they spotted that person. They then got out and allegedly shot at a group of people on the home’s porch.
