Man charged in NJ woman's shooting death

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say a New Jersey man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a woman over the weekend following what officials call a neighborhood dispute. Thirty-two-year-old Marketa Thorpe, reported shot in Atlantic City Saturday morning, was pronounced dead at Atlanticare Regional Medial Center. County prosecutors say 69-year-old Maximo Santiago was apprehended soon afterward, and officials said Sunday he was charged with first-degree murder and weapons counts. Santiago is awaiting a detention hearing; it’s unclear whether he has an attorney and a listed number in his name couldn’t be found Sunday. Authorities haven’t released details about the dispute.
