Army Soldier, Teen Boy Charged In Sussex County Killing Of 20-Year-Old Corporal Hayden Harris

A 23-year-old Fort Drum soldier and 16-year-old boy are facing murder and kidnapping charges in the Sussex County killing of 20-year-old U.S. Army Cpl. Hayden Harris.

Pvt. Jamaal Mellish, 23, and the unidentified teen were arrested earlier this month after Harris' body was found buried in snow, in a wooded area off Ross Road in Byram Dec. 19, authorities in Sussex County previously said.

Mellish, of Brooklyn, was charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, handgun possession, suppression of evidence and more, the Sussex County Prosecutor's Office announced Monday.

The teen was charged with kidnapping, felony murder, possession of a handgun and possession of a firearm with intent to use it unlawfully, according to the Sussex County Prosecutor's Office.

The 20-year-old corporal's body was found by Byram Township firefighters, who noticed personal belongings including documents and shoes near a wooded cul-de-sac near Ross Road on the afternoon of Dec. 19, Sussex County First Assistant Prosecutor Gregory Mueller said.

Firefighters called police when they saw blood, he said.

Mellish, Harris' fellow soldier, was believed to have abducted and shot Harris after meeting for "some type of vehicle exchange," Meuller said.

Mellish was arrested in Watertown, NY, where he was held pending an extradition hearing in New Jersey.
