A Sicklerville teenwho was waived up to adult court to face a murder charge was indicted Tuesday. Dr. Steven Davion Garrett, 17, was found dead just before 1 p.m. Aug. 7, 2015, in Max Manning Park on Lincoln Avenue in Pleasantville. An autopsy found that Garrett — whose first name was Dr. — died of multiple gunshot wounds, and ruled the cause of death as homicide. Isiah Newsome, who was also 17 at the time,  was arrested two months later. Family Division Judge Susan Maven granted a motion this past December to waive Newsome up to adult court. Newsome, now 19. is in the Atlantic County Justice Facility on $750,000 full cash bail. On Tuesday, he was indicted on charges of murder, gang criminality, possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of a handgun. First Assistant Prosecutor Cary Shill announced.
