Updated: May 12
Four people have been arrested in the killing of a youth football coach in Millville. Joseph Jones, 37, was shot in the parking lot of Lakeside Middle School, not far from where Midget League players were practicing Aug. 9. The killers fled in a car. Eugene Cosby, 42, of Malaga, and Will El-Bey, 22, of Vineland, are now charged with homicide and conspiracy to commit homicide in the case, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae announced. Genea Hughes-Lee, 34, of Malaga, and Tyrek Hart, 22, of Vineland, are charged with conspiracy to hinder apprehension, hindering apprehension, obstruction and two counts of false report to law enforcement. “The homicide was particularly unsettling because it was committed in broad daylight at a football practice field in front of numerous children,” Webb-McRae said. “It is my hope that these arrests assure the victim’s family, the children and parents of the Millville Midget Football League and the greater community that law enforcement will do all in its power to bring those we allege are responsible to justice.” All four are in the Cumberland County jail pending detention hearings.
