Second Suspect In Court For Genesis Rincon Murder - My9 New Jersey

Second Suspect In Court For Genesis Rincon Murder

Posted: Updated:
Paterson, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Yesterday, the second individual being charged with first-degree murder in the tragic killing of Genesis Rincon, Jeffery Ellerbee, went before a judge at the Passaic County Courthouse.

This hearing was very different than the previous hearing of Jhymiere Moore that took place late last week as previously reported by Chasing New Jersey. Genesis’ father Alexis Rincon, who has been very outspoken after this tragedy and recently became a community activist, seemed tired and a lot less like an activist and more like a father who’s dealing with the emotional strain of losing a child.

Rincon walked into the courthouse declining to speak to the media. During the hearing he was stone-faced staring directly at the defendant the entire time. Ellerbee did not make eye contact with him. As the Rincon’s left they escaped out of a back exit and didn’t want to address the community or the press at that time.

Inside the courtroom the charges for Ellerbee were first-degree murder along with a handful of weapons offenses. He continues to be held on $2 million bail and the judge says that if they seek a reduction hearing then she’s going to require that they prove the source of income for any money used to make sure that it’s all legal.

During the hearing the defense pointed out that much like Jhymiere Moore, Ellerbee also has no record. So even if these individuals are convicted of first-degree murder, it appears that this may have been isolated behavior.

    The knockout game where young people randomly punch innocent bystanders to see if they can knock them unconscious has been relatively rare in New Jersey, until now. After three attacks in less than half an hour in a safe Hackensack neighborhood, some residents are concerned that this trend will pose potential problems for more New Jerseyans. Hackensack police are looking for a man caught on surveillance video who is suspected of the three separate assaults.
