ATLANTIC CITY - Police say they have arrested a suspect in the deadly carjacking in the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort parking garage in Atlantic City this past weekend.

Phillip Byrd, of Camden, is charged with 28-year-old Sunil Rattu's murder. He's accused of carjacking Rattu and his girlfriend, Radha Ghetia, 24, in the parking garage Sunday morning.

Arrest warrants have been issued for two additional men from Camden also charged in the murder. They remain at large. The three were caught on surveillance video at the Taj Mahal.

Authorities say the suspects stalked potential victims at two casinos before targeting the couple.

Rattu's family members gathered today in Sayreville for a traditional Hindu funeral. Many were dressed in white to symbolize their grief and many also covered their heads out of respect.3 wanted on murder charges in Taj Mahal fatal carjackProsecutor: 1 killed, 1 wounded in AC carjacking
