Sexual encounter preceded Jersey City murder, prosecution says
Updated January 24, 2018 at 7:27 AM


JERSEY CITY - The son of a retired Newark police officer was shot dead in 2015 after a sexual encounter with the man who killed him, the prosecution alleged Tuesday in the murder trial of Ibn Bailey.

Bailey, a Newark resident, is charged with the March 25, 2015 murder of Karl Revis, 40, of East Orange. He was arrested in Virginia five days after the homicide where he was incarcerated on a drug charge, officials said.

In her opening statement Tuesday afternoon, Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Jane Weiner told the jury that Bailey - who was 29 at the time - initially told investigators he and Revis met in Jersey City for a drug deal on the day of the fatal shooting on Pacific Avenue in Jersey City.

But Weiner said text messages show the meeting was for a sexual encounter and security video shows them entering the victim's East Orange home earlier in the day and leaving a short time later. It shows the clothes they were wearing, Weiner said, adding that Bailey identified both himself and Revis in the video.

Another security camera shows Revis' vehicle pulling over on Pacific Avenue while yet another shows a man running and he appears to be wearing the same clothing Bailey had on in the East Orange video. The man is seen going through the pockets of a green jacket. Revis was wearing a green jacket in the footage taken in East Orange, Weiner said.

Revis was found dead, slumped over the steering wheel of the still-running vehicle, on Pacific Avenue.
