NEWARK, New Jersey — The man accused of killing three people inside a northern New Jersey strip club last Christmas has been indicted on murder charges.
Essex County prosecutors say 19-year-old Anthony Fields of Newark also faces carjacking, kidnapping, aggravated assault and weapons charges in the 11-count indictment made public Monday afternoon. He remains jailed on $2 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 14.
The charges stem from a shooting at Slick's Go Go Bar in Irvington, about 15 miles west of New York City. Authorities have said the shooting occurred when Fields apparently tried to enter the bar with a gun but was stopped by a bouncer.
Fields initially was charged with three counts of murder and two counts of aggravated assault, and pleaded not guilty to those charges during his initial court appearance in February.
The three men killed in the shooting included the club owner's son, Pierre Clervoyant, 34, of Elizabeth, and a club employee, Woodley Daniel, 32, of Irvington. The other man slain was 27-year-old Mushir Curetonnot of Newark, who police have said appeared to be an unintended target.
Two other men were wounded in the shooting, but both have recovered from their wounds.
Slick's is located in an industrial area of Irvington, a few blocks from the Garden State Parkway. Roughly 100 people were in the club when the shooting occurred.
Fields fled the area after the shooting, but was arrested in January at his mother's home in Orlando, Florida
