He was charged at the Middlesex County Corrections Center where he had been lodged since May 29, 2019 on unrelated charges, authorities said.

Harris was taken into custody by New Brunswick Police Department Tuesday, May 26 and charged with first-degree murder, second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.
