JERSEY CITY - As a community prepares to lay to rest a 12-year-old boy shot last weekend, a 25-year-old woman has been arrested and charged in his murder.

Janice S. Everett, of Rahway, is charged with felony murder and two counts of armed robbery. Police believe that Everett was working with at least one other suspect and that the group was trying to rob Gywan Levine Sr. and his son Gywan Levine Jr. outside their Rutgers Avenue home on May 17.

Hudson County Acting Prosecutor Gaetano Gregory says the group is connected to at least one other robbery in Jersey City that same day.

The boy was shot in the shoulder and died at a hospital. His father was shot in the leg, but is expected to survive.

Everett is being held on $250,000 bond for the murder charge and an additional $100,000 for the earlier robbery. Everett appeared before a judge today.

Detectives are still searching for two other suspects believed to be involved in the shooting. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office Homicide Unit at (201) 915-1345.
