2 ex-Temple University officers accused of killing woman

- One of the two former Temple police officers arrested in connection with the murder of a woman in Germantown was her boyfriend, according to Philadelphia police.

They say Friday morning, officers responded to the 4600 block of Greene Street where medics were performing CPR on 24-year-old Joyce Quaweay.

Then, they saw a man “on the steps leading to the second floor who was later identified as Aaron Wright, 47. Wright stood up, and stated ‘I’m the one you want’ he was taken into custody without incident.”

Quaweay was pronounced dead at the scene.

Later, their investigation found Quaweay “was the girlfriend of Aaron Wright who is a former Temple Police Officer. Wright admitted to beating the victim until she collapsed.”

Also, Philadelphia police say Temple officer Marquis Robinson got away before they arrived but “he was later arrested for his involvement in the murder.”

Wright is charged with murder, aggravated assault, unlawful restraint, criminal conspiracy, abuse of corpse and related offenses.

Robinson, 41, is charged with conspiracy to murder, aggravated assault, abuse of corpse and related offenses.

Temple University released a statement saying, "Aaron Wright resigned from Temple's police department in 2012. Marquis Robinson has been terminated from the department. Temple is cooperating with Philadelphia police in their investigation."
