City man indicted in connection with his girlfriend’s death
Earlier this month, a grand jury returned an indictment charging a city man with murder in connection with the June 2013 stabbing death of his 54-year-old girlfriend Celeste Pernell.
William Nobles, 40, was indicted March 7 on charges of first-degree murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose in connection with Pernell’s death.
According to charging documents in the case, Nobles was arrested and charged with Pernell’s death after a Camden resident called police and reported that Nobles had admitted to killing his girlfriend. Police were then dispatched to Pernell’s Southard Street home where they found her lying on the floor suffering from massive head trauma with scissors protruding from her neck, documents state.
Nobles remains held on $1 million bail.
