Trenton man indicted in murder of rapper Young Farr

A Mercer County grand jury has indicted gangster Wayne K. Bush, 36, of Bellevue Avenue, for the August assassination of a rapper known as Young Farr, 26-year-old Jafar Lewis.

Bush is charged with murder and weapons offenses for shooting Bush in the head on Middle Rose Street near Brunswick Avenue at 9:20 p.m. the night of Aug. 23 last year.

Bush surrendered to Mercer prosecutors on Aug. 30 and has been lodged in the county jail since in lieu of $1 million bail.

Lewis’ girlfriend Twanna Robinson told The Trentonian the killing happened as she was traveling with him on King Boulevard when a car pulled alongside theirs at a stop sign.

She said Lewis and Wayne both got out of their vehicles and she then heard two shots. Robinson got out of the vehicle and saw Lewis, who wasn’t carrying a weapon, lying on the ground with a gunshot to the head.

She also said she looked the shooter — dressed in all black — dead in the face and reocognized it was Bush, who has ties to Lewis’ family.

Robinson also said after Bush backed his car down the street she was screaming his name loudly so neighbors could hear who killed her Young Farr.

“I was screaming, ‘You’re going to jail,’” Robinson said. Lewis’ mother, Jacqueline Marshall, said Bush was engaged to marry her niece.

Cops identified Bush as a gangster with the Sex-Money-Murder wing of the Bloods who once took part in a violent home invasion in Ewing. One of the latest weapons charges on him is gun possession by a convicted felon.

Assistant Mercer Prosecutor Lew Korngut, chief of homicide, presented the case to the grand jury.
