Defense calls evidence in Fairfield Township fatal birthday party shooting circumstantial
The attorney for a man accused of having killed two of three people during a birthday party in Fairfield Township earlier this year says the case against his client is entirely circumstantial.
Zedekiah Holmes, 21, of Millville, is charged in the deaths of Kevin Elliot, 30, and Asia Hester, 25, in the May 22 gunfire at the home.
Holmes is the older brother of the third person killed; no one has been charged in her death.
NJ.com reports that defense attorney John Morris challenged Tuesday whether prosecutors had adequate evidence, saying no eyewitnesses appear to have implicated his client as having been involved.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
