The second man sought by police in
connection with the September 12 murder of Victoria Carmen White, a
transgender woman, surrendered on Sunday, the Star-Tribune
Alrashim Chambers turned himself in at
the Newark Police Department's 4th precinct late Sunday
Authorities allege that Chambers, 23,
and Marquise Foster, 25, killed White during an after hours party.
Foster, of North Plainfield, surrendered to authorities last
White was shot dead during an
altercation on September 12 at an after hours party in a Maplewood
apartment. White met the men 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.
The 28-year-old White, born James
White, underwent gender reassignment surgery nine years ago and
worked as a lingerie model.
Investigators believe Chambers and
Foster learned that White was once a man “during the course of
their interactions” with her, sparking the altercation.
The New Jersey-based gay rights group
Garden State Equality had posted a $2,000 reward for information
leading to the arrests of the suspects in the murder.
Officials have set bail for each
suspect at $1 million.
