The six family members who were killed in a fire in Newark this past weekend all died of smoke inhalation, and their deaths were accidental, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says the victims were found around 12:20 a.m. Saturday in the area of West Bigelow Street and Milford Avenue. Officers had gone there after receiving reports of an injured person.
Police arrested 18-year-old Isiah Adams and a 16-year-old on Monday in connection with the shooting death of 37-year-old Miguel Torres.
Two Newark men have been killed in separate shootings in the city, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said.
