Default (Black) Lawyer Charged in Girlfriend's Murder Is Captured in Cuba


Lawyer Charged in Girlfriend's Murder Is Captured in Cuba
Published 3 hours ago | Updated 53 minutes ago


A lawyer wanted in the shooting death of his girlfriend inside their suburban New Jersey home last month has been captured in Cuba after weeks on the run, officials said Wednesday.

James Ray III was apprehended in Cuba before he could go through customs, according to the Essex County prosecutor. He arrived back in New Jersey Tuesday night and was being held in the Essex County Jail.

He's expected to make his first court appearance Nov. 13. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

The 55-year-old Montclair man faces murder charges in the death of 44-year-old Angela Bledsoe. She was found shot to death Oct. 23 inside the home where they lived with their young child.

Authorities say police responding to a wellness check found Bledsoe suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ray wasn't at the home when police arrived. The child wasn't hurt and was put in the care of family members.

Neighbor Dave Kaplan says the family was very private, but he never would have expected anything nefarious. He says he last saw Ray taking out the garbage the morning before Bledsoe was found dead.

Homicides in Montclair are relatively rare. There was a high-profile case there in 2016 -- that of Sarah Butler, a 20-year-old college student whose body was found in a state reservation eight days after she went missing. The man charged in that case has also been accused in the deaths of two other women.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
