New Jersey Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour murder suspect knew her from church, police say
The suspect was charged with first-degree murder as well as two second-degree counts related to handgun possession.
A man who knew Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour from church was arrested in connection to her murder after she was shot to death in her SUV outside of her home in February, New Jersey prosecutors said.
Rashid Ali Bynum, 28, of Portsmouth, Virginia, was arrested Tuesday without incident in connection to the death of Dwumfour, a 30-year-old pastor and mother, the Middlesex Prosecutor's Office said.
Bynum was charged with first-degree murder as well as two second-degree counts related to handgun possession.
Police say Dwumfour knew Bynum from Fire Congress Fellowship, which is a church she was affiliated with, according to a local ABC affiliate.
Investigators do not have a motive for her murder, but Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone said surveillance video shows the suspect fleeing the scene after the shooting.
