Cops arrested a Ewing man Wednesday night, charging him in connection with a murder that happened in November.

Issiaha Bivens, 20, was charged with murder, felony murder, robbery, attempted murder, theft, aggravated assault and weapons offenses related to the death of 27-year-old Eric Severino.

When homicide detectives searched Bivens’ Upland Avenue home they found 18 bricks of heroin in his bedroom, as well as several cell phones. As a result, Bivens has been additionally charged with possession of narcotics.

Severino, of Philadelphia, was shot to death while sitting in the driver’s seat of a white Dodge Journey that was parked in the 100 block of Walnut Avenue around 10:30 p.m. on November 18. He was rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his torso and later pronounced dead.

Investigators believe Severino’s death was the result of a robbery gone awry.

Bivens is being held at the Mercer County Correction Center pending a detention hearing.
