Daron Trent Indicted in Paulsboro Slaying

Trent is charged with murder and related offenses in the November 2011 slaying of 25-year-old Jamaal Barker.

A grand jury in Gloucester County indicted a Trenton man accused of gunning down a 25-year-old man in Paulsboro. 

Daron D. Trent, 28, is charged in the indictment with one first-degree count of murder and weapons offenses. The indictment was handed up Wednesday. 

On Nov. 30, 2011, Trent got out of a 2000 Lexus on West Washington Street, pulled out a two-tone machine gun and shot Jamaal Barker, 25, a father of two, execution-style, prosecutors said. Barker was a Camden resident. 

Trent was arrested about two weeks after the murder, after an investigation by the prosecutor's office, Paulsboro police and Mercer County Prosecutor's Office, with assistance from the U.S. Marshal's Trenton Task Force and the State Police.

Trent is a known street-gang member, prosecutors said. He has prior convictions for theft and drug distribution.
