Teen to be tried as adult in Murder of two teens

Posted: Updated:


An Atlantic City teen, who was charged as a juvenile in the double 
homicide of two Pleasantville teens has been waived up to criminal court, Acting Atlantic 
County Prosecutor Jim McClain announced today.

On April 18, 2013, the Atlantic City Police Department apprehended Abubaka Brown, 
now 18, for the murders of 19-year-old Taron Williams and 13-year-old Todd Mitchell.

On December 5, 2012, Williams and Mitchell were discovered by police outside of a 
residence located at 10 ½ Woodland Avenue in Pleasantville. Both teens had sustained 
multiple gunshot wounds and were transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, 
City Campus, where they were pronounced dead a short time later.

Following four months of investigation by the Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit and 
the Pleasantville Police Department, Brown was charged with two counts of murder, 
robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and weapons offenses. 

Brown was initially charged as a juvenile because he was 17 years old when the 
murders were committed. He was waived up as an adult on Friday.

Brown has been lodged at the Atlantic County Justice Facility in lieu of $350,000 bail.
A first appearance by Brown has been scheduled for this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. before 
Superior Court Judge Michael Donio.
