February Shooting in Willingboro Leads to Murder Indictment

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina announced that a 23-year-old Willingboro resident has been indicted for fatally shooting a man who was sitting inside a parked vehicle earlier this year on Millbrook Drive.

Terrance J. Matthews, of the 100 block of Eastbrook Lane, was indicted on one count of Murder (First Degree), Conspiracy to Commit Murder (First Degree), Attempted Murder (First Degree), Conspiracy to Commit Attempted Murder (First Degree), Unlawful Possession of a Weapon (First Degree), Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose (Second Degree), and Certain Persons Not to Possess Firearms (Second Degree).

The indictment was returned September 10 and signed by Prosecutor Coffina.

An arraignment will be scheduled soon in Superior Court. Matthews is being detained in the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly.

The investigation revealed that on February 18, just before 1 a.m., Davell Williamson, 21, of Willingboro, and another man were sitting inside of a car parked on Millbrook Drive when Matthews approached the vehicle and began shooting at the occupants.

Williamson was later pronounced dead at Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County in Willingboro. His passenger was shot in the arm and treated and released from Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

Matthews is being prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Jamie Hutchinson.

The investigation was conducted by the Prosecutor’s Office and the Willingboro Township Police Department. The lead investigators are BCPO Detective Melvin Rogers and Willingboro Township Police Detective Sharif Hewlett.

An indictment is an accusation. Defendants are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty.
