  • Jury sees video of killing of Marine veteran

    Wednesday Apr 22 | via Stars and Stripes 

    There is no question that Darrell Crone and Timothy Loper Jr. both went to the same bar on the same night near the waterfront in Camden, N.J., almost a year and a half ago, but a jury will have to decide whether the gunman seen in a video shooting Loper is actually Crone. The jury, seated this week, started hearing testimony Tuesday in the trial of Crone on first-degree murder charges in the killing of Loper, 27, of Pine Hill, N.J. Loper, a Marine veteran who served in Afghanistan and who was the father of a daughter, then 6, was at the 20 Horse Tavern at Second and Spruce Streets with high school buddies when he was killed Dec. 1, 2013.
