Charges imminent in 2008 South Philadelphia homicide: Report
Police reportedly will soon file homicide charges in connection with the 2008 shooting death of 23-year-old Beau Zabel in South Philadelphia.
An arrest warrant is imminent for a man already serving life in prison for murder, according to reports.
And, according to an NBC10 report, the murder for which Marcellus Jones, 35, is serving a life sentence is connected to Zabel’s death.
Zabel, a graduate student at Drexel University from Minnesota, was killed as he walked home from work at a South Philadelphia Starbucks on June 15, 2008. Philadelphia police believe he was slain in a robbery in which he was targeted for his iPod.
During Jones’ trial last summer for the murder of 20-year-old Tyreek Taylor, evidence was presented that Jones killed Taylor due to Taylor’s knowledge of his involvement in Zabel’s slaying.
