Burlington City murder suspect captured
The search for the Burlington City man accused of breaking into his ex's house and stabbing her to death Monday night is over.
Rashon A. Causey, 38, is being held on a full $1,050,000 bail in connection with the death of Shanai Marshall, according to information from the office of Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi. He was given his first court appearance today.
Causey had been classified as a fugitive until apprehension Wednesday night in a dwelling on Elm Avenue in Burlington City.
The U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Task Force directed the arrest, entailing officers and K-9 tams from Burlington City, Lumberton and Cinnaminson, the Burlington County Sheriff's Office and New Jersey State Police.
Shanai Marshall, 37 died Wednesday afternoon at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton. Investigators believe that Causey, who shared a child with her, stormed the house in Mount Holly just before midnight Monday.
He's charged with first-degree murder, second-degree counts of aggravated assault and burglary, and third- and fourth-degree weapons charges.
Charges are accusations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless, and until, found guilty in a court of law.
