BRIDGETON, N.J. - The attorney for a man accused of having killed two of three people slain during a birthday party in New Jersey earlier this year says the case against his client is entirely circumstantial.
Twenty-one-year-old Zedekiah Holmes of Millville is charged in the deaths of 30-year-old Kevin Elliot and 25-year-old Asia Hester in the May 22 gunfire at the Fairfield Township home.
