Posted on 08/11/2007 6:07:46 PM PDT by Coleus
The investigation into the execution-style murder of three college students took a shocking turn Friday afternoon with a report that two of the victims may have been sexually assaulted before they were killed.
FOX 5 New York reported that a sexual attack may have occurred before college students Terrance Aeriel, Iofemi Hightower and Dashon Harvey were shot to death, and 19-year old Natasha Aerial was critically wounded.
Authorities charged a third suspect with three counts of felony murder in the killings Friday evening, according to an Associated Press report. The suspect was described as a 15-year-old boy by Essex County prosecutors during a late press conference.
The latest developments capped a day of high drama in Essex County Superior Court, where Peruvian national Jose Carranza, an illegal immigrant previously charged with raping a 5-year-old, pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder and one charge each of attempted murder and robbery.
Speaking through a Spanish interpreter, Carranza, 28, who surrendered Thursday to Mayor Cory A. Booker, said he understood the charges against him.
A second suspect, a 15-year-old boy, pleaded not guilty Thursday and remains in custody, Assistant Essex County Prosecutor Thomas McTigue said Friday. Authorities are seeking to have the boy tried as an adult.

Funny how he turned himself in to the mayor and not the police.
Funny how he lawyered up, too.
Rape and murder, in additon to drunk driving, bribery and other sorts of random violence are just a part of their culture which these hardworking migrants bring to America.
So the Mayor of Newark facilitated the sexual assault and murder !
It is odd how he got all this help, isn’t it? Got news for him. It ain’t gonna help. These politicians and lawyers are thinking only about their jobs.
Sharp James was the mayor for year. In a state of corrupt political official he rates in the top 10.
Lay this directly on that slime ball Corzine and the Democrats who run NJ and have turned Newark and every other city into sanctuaries, where raping, murdering illegals are protected.
No one could ask these criminals if they were citizens or turn them in to DHS or ICE. I haven’t heard much blame being put on these accomplices to the three murders of the college students.
Shocking turn? No.
What would have been shocking is to find that a known sexual offender DIDN’T sexually assault them first.
MALDEF and La Raza, baby! They've got these animals' backs.
I heard this morning that they are looking for a fourth suspect now.
This guy's been here since the 90's? Why do we get all the fast learners?
To be used in the case of these threads which center in on some kind of horrific crime committed on our soil against Americans, by ILLEGAL ALIENS, whom, if we had a border enforcement policy in place, would never have been on our soil to commit it:
Oh well. ;-)
Here’s a couple more articles about this. It just gets worse and worse. Looks like they’re MS-13 and there have been machete attacks by this bunch before!
The 10 towers that make up the Ivy Hill Park apartments soar above western Newark like a city within a city. Home to 10,000 people, it is New Jersey’s largest privately owned apartment complex, an affordable haven for working-class families since the 1950s.
Residents call it a “little United Nations,” a place where kids from Central America play with kids from Sri Lanka, where Bangladeshis mix with Jamaicans, Ukrainians with Brazilians, whites with blacks.
It’s the kind of place, residents say, where serious trouble is still rare enough that it stands out.
José Lachira Carranza and his small band of friends stood out.
Residents say the group, which included at least three teenage boys, drank beer and smoked marijuana in the hallways of the 14-story towers and in the playground of the nearby Mount Vernon School.
In recent months, they turned to strong-arm robbery, ordering passers-by to hand over cash, residents said.
A week ago yesterday, that same group is alleged to have done far worse, shooting four college-bound friends in the back of their heads behind the Mount Vernon School. Three of the four died.
Carranza, 28, and two of the teens have already been charged in the killings.
Yesterday, as the victims were laid to rest and as authorities continued to hunt for others involved in the case, residents described how Ivy Hill Park became the tie between the disparate suspects, the place where they met and allegedly forged a bond through crime.
The residents portrayed Carranza and his cohorts as chronic troublemakers with apparent ties to MS-13, a Central American gang with a growing foothold in Ivy Hill Park. [snip]
He just went berserk, said Mr. Torres, who said on Friday that he was injured as he and two other men tried to restrain Mr. Carranza. (Family members and friends had given Mr. Carranza, an illegal immigrant from Peru, the nickname Shaka Zulu, after the African warrior, according to Mr. Torres and others.)
Mr. Carranza was arrested that night, Oct. 1, 2006, on charges of aggravated assault, and later freed on $150,000 bail. He was still awaiting trial in that case and on an unrelated charge of sexual abuse of a child when he was arrested again this week in connection with last Saturdays brutal gun and machete attack on a group of students in a Newark playground, which left three dead and another hospitalized with a bullet wound to the face.[snip]
