UPDATE: Noon Today:
NEWARK, N.J. — Federal prosecutors have dismissed an unlawful flight charge against one of the four men accused of killing a man during a carjacking at an upscale New Jersey mall.
Today's legal maneuvering was done so Basim Henry could be turned over to Essex County authorities to face state charges in the killing.
Henry was arrested in Pennsylvania. The 32-year-old was accused of violating the conditions of his supervised release from a 2006 robbery.
Authorities say a co-conspirator told them Henry drove a getaway vehicle that surveillance video showed was registered to Henry’s mother.
Henry and three others are each held on $2 million, charged with murder and carjacking.
They’re accused of shooting 30-year-old Dustin Friedland in the head at The Mall at Short Hills and driving off in his silver Range Rover, which was found the next morning in Newark. Friedland was a 2006 graduate of Bucknell University.
