Corbett’s alleged killers each held on $1 million bail
TRENTON- A county judge maintained a $1 million bail for two city men who allegedly worked together to kill another man on January 23.
Keith Wells-Holmes and Zihqwan Clemens appeared in front of Judge Pedro Jimenez for a bail hearing early Thursday morning.
The men are charged with the murder of Andre Corbett, Trenton’s second homicide of the new year.
Corbett was on the corner of Hoffman Avenue and Oakland Street when, according to police, Wells-Holmes walked up to the 35-year-old victim and allegedly shot him multiple times with a handgun, killing him instantly.
Eye witnesses and video surveillance of the area lead police to the 20 year old Wells-Holmes, who, according to police, left the scene in a car driven by Clemens.
The prosecution also charged the 22 year-old Clemens with murder siting that his involvement as the alleged getaway driver also caused the death of the victim.
Clemens, who violated probation on a previous drug charge, must remain in prison pending a separate hearing. Wells-Holmes has been charged with murder, weapons possesion and marijuana possession.
