Police say they have charged 18-year old Supreme Allah Jr. with murder, robbery, carjacking and possession of a handgun.

The 14-year old, whose name is not being released, is facing the same charges.

The suspects were caught Friday morning when the car was spotted by police on Springfield Avenue. After a brief foot chase, police made the arrests.

A friend of Henry's told News 12 that this Thanksgiving was to be her first without her mother who had recently passed away.

Allah and Torres are being held at Essex County Correctional Facility. The juvenile is being held at Essex County Youth Detention Facility.
