Second person charged with murder of Pennsauken, NJ grandmother
PENNSAUKEN — Nine months after a woman was killed in a home invasion and one person was arrested in connection with the death days later, a second individual has been apprehended and charged with felony murder.
The arrest of Iyonna Flowers, 28, of Camden on Sept. 28 followed the Jan. 12 capture of Joshua Johnson, 18 and also of Camden, by the U.S. Marshals Regional Task Force in Newark, the same agency that took Flowers into custody, according to a release from the Camden County Prosecutor's Office on Thursday.
Whether either Flowers or Johnson were previously known to the victim in the Jan. 9 fatal shooting in Pennsauken, Darlene Randall, 62, was not disclosed by authorities.
Early on the morning of Jan. 9, prosecutors said, Pennsauken police officers responded to an apartment on Herbert Avenue on a report of a home invasion.
There, they found Randall suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at Cooper University Hospital.
At the time, neighbors interviewed by CBS Philly characterized Randall as a "loving grandmother."
Flowers and Johnson are both currently held at the Camden County Correctional Facility.
