Sayreville woman faces additional charges in homicide committed in North Brunswick


Additional charges have been filed against two individuals related to a homicide in North Brunswick last month.

On April 27, Demond Gray, 43, of New Brunswick, and Katura Williams, 40, of Sayreville, were charged and served with complaints for one count of first-degree murder committed during the course of a robbery, one count of first-degree robbery, and one count of second-degree conspiracy to commit robbery, according to information provided by Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone and Chief Joseph Battaglia of the North Brunswick Police Department.

On March 21, Gray was charged with murder and Williams was charged with obstruction and hindering Gray’s apprehension. However, an ongoing investigation by Detective Keri Shutz of the North Brunswick Police Department and Detective Mark Morris of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office led to the issuance of additional complaints, according to the new statement.

On March 20 at noon, officers from the North Brunswick Police Department responded to the Farrington Inn following an emergency call for an unresponsive male.Upon their arrival, authorities located Abdul Conteh, 60, of Somerset, who showed signs of physical injury, according to officials.

Conteh was later pronounced dead at the scene. 

The investigation revealed Gray allegedly assaulted and killed Conteh in the hotel room during the course of a strong-arm robbery undertaken with Williams.

Gray and Williams are separately lodged at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center where they are being held pending a pre-trial detention hearing in Superior Court, as of press time.

Anyone with information should call Shutz at 732-634-7700 or Morris at 732-745-3927.
