One of two suspects sought by police in connection to the September 12 murder of Victoria Carmen White, a transgender woman, surrendered on Saturday.

Marquise Foster, 25, of North Plainfield surrendered to authorities at approximately 8PM on Saturday, the Essex County Prosecutor's Office announced. A second suspect, Alrashim Chambers, 23, of Newark remains at large and has also been charged with murder.

White was shot dead during an altercation on September 12 at an after hours party in a Maplewood apartment. Foster met White earlier that same night at an Irvington nightclub. Police suspect she was killed because of her sexual orientation and are considering adding hate crime charges, local CW affiliate PIX 11 reported.

The 28-year-old White, born James White, underwent gender reassignment surgery nine years ago and worked as a lingerie model.

The New Jersey-based gay rights group Garden State Equality has announced a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of the suspects in the murder.

Foster, whose bail has been set at $1 million, surrendered with the help of an attorney.
