Man Arrested for 2 Month Murder Spree

One of the three people arrested in connection with a Jersey City couple is accused of three other murders.

Shiquan Bellamy is accused of five murders in a two month period.

Bellamy is being held on $6 million bail after being changed in the execution-style killings of a couple in Jersey City who had returned from their engagement party on Easter. The 19-year-old was also charged with three more killings on Monday.

Bellamy is charged in the Feb. 2 murders of cousins Mileak Richardson and Lester"Bleek" Thompson in Jersey City.

Bellamy is also charged with the murder of Lamonte Wright on March 27 in Jersey City.

Darmelia Lawrence, 19, and Latonia Bellamy, 19 are also charged in connection with the Jersey City couple's killings.

The Bellamys are believed to be cousins and they were the shooters according to the Hudson County prosecutor.

Michael Muchiaki, 27, and Nia Haqq, 25, were shot twice in the head near their car, which was not taken, in an apparent botched carjacking.

The couple had attended a party in New Brunswick and returned to their Jersey City home around 3 a.m. As they parked their car, they were approached by a man and two women, who later fled the scene in another vehicle.

DeFazio said that based on the crime scene and witness statements, it appears the victims were shot during an unsuccessful carjacking. Authorities believe their car could not be taken because it had an anti-theft device.

They were to be buried together at Rosedale & Rosehill Cemetery in Linden.
