Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Audubon Police Chief Thomas Tassi announced a Camden man has been convicted in connection with a 2014 fatal shooting.
A jury found Brandon Mosby, 26, guilty on October 4, 2017 of first-degree murder in the death of 48-year-old John Carey of Audubon. Mosby was also found guilty of second degree Possession of a Weapon for Unlawful Purpose, second degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and second degree Certain Persons Not to Possess Weapons.
At the trial, Assistant Prosecutor Nevan Soumilas presented evidence and testimony showing Brandon Mosby killed John Carey because Carey intervened as Mosby was beating his ex-girlfriend. She had ended her relationship with Mosby that evening. When John Carey saw the assault spill over into a common area of the residence, he attempted to protect the woman and her toddler. The evidence presented at trial showed that Brandon Mosby shot John Carey once in the torso and then fled the residence.
Brandon Mosby, who faces the possibility of a minimum of 30 years to a maximum potential sentence of life, will be sentenced on December 8, 2017 before the Honorable Judge Frederick Schuck.
Released Thursday, October 5, 2017.
