TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A white man captured on video yelling racist slurs at his Black neighbors in New Jersey and later arrested on harassment and more than a dozen other charges will remain in jail pending his trial. 45-year-old Edward C. Mathews of Mount Laurel stood silently from Burlington County jail during a remotely held detention hearing Wednesday as Judge Terrence Cook said he poses a “high risk of danger to the community" and will remain in jail pending his trial. Wednesday’s hearing marked the first time Mathews appeared in court on charges that stemmed from early July interactions with his neighbors at their Mount Laurel housing complex.
