Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Cherry Hill Police Chief William Monaghan reported a fugitive wanted for his role in a Cherry Hill homicide has been captured in Georgia.
Kevin Fentress, 21, of Burlington City was taken into custody at approximately 11:32 a.m. on Friday by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Regional Fugitive Task Force – Camden Division and Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force – Atlanta Division at an acquaintance’s residence in Marietta, Georgia.
The investigation spanned across New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio before ending in Georgia.
Fentress, who was arrested without incident, is currently being held in Georgia and is awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
Fentress was sought by authorities for the murder of 17-year-old Jadyre Gordon of Camden.
Gordon was shot outside the Inn of the Dove in Cherry Hill located at 725 Cuthbert approximately 2:24 a.m. on February 28. Gordon and another victim were driven in a private vehicle to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden.
