CAMDEN, N.J. - A judge ordered no bail for the two men authorities say are connected to the kidnapping and murder of a Camden man. Dozens of people packed into the courtroom on Thursday.
The judge said both 32-year-old Brandon Beverly and 22-year-old Jalen Carr were flight risks with a history of not showing up for court appearances.
Camden County officials say the body of 20-year-old Curtis Jenkins III was found inside an abandoned home on the 1100 block of Liberty Street.
Police believe Beverly is the alleged mastermind in Jenkins' death. Prosecutors say Beverly kidnapped Jenkins in June while he was on a food delivery. According to authorities, Beverly contacted his family to get a ransom but eventually killed him
Prosecutors say Carr is charged with taking part in a robbery where he got the cell phone used to make the ransom call.
Jenkins is the grandson of the Camden city council president. He will be laid to rest on Saturday.
