Alexandria Gomez charged in connection with shooting death of Rodney Burke

A second person has been charged in connection with the shooting death of 48-year-old Rodney Burke.

Alexandria Gomez, 30, is charged with murder and conspiracy, and prosecutors say she conspired with others to commit a robbery, which resulted in Burke’s death. Kenneth Hines, 34, was arrested last week and charged with those same offenses in connection with Burke’s murder.

Around 2 a.m. on Nov. 4, police found Burke suffering from multiple gunshot wounds inside his South Broad Street apartment. Burke was then taken to St. Francis Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.

Hines’ and Gomez’s bail was set at $1 million cash or bond. Prosecutors say Gomez is currently being held at Rikers Island in New York on unrelated charges.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Mercer County Homicide Task Force at (609) 989-6406. Or use the Trenton Police confidential tip line at (609) 989-3663.
