Marquise Foster

Name The Problem

The co-defendant who testified last month at the trial of a man charged with fatally shooting a transgender female in Maplewood was sentenced to time served, after pleading guilty to a lesser crime.

Marquise Foster, 26, was originally charged along with Alrashim Chambers in the September 2010 killing of Victoria Carmen White. Foster soon pleaded guilty to hindering apprehension in exchange for his planned testimony against Chambers. The Essex County, New Jersey Prosecutor’s Office put Chambers on trial for murder and bias intimidation, saying he shot and killed White, 28, after discovering her gender identity.

A jury acquitted Chambers, 25, of all charges at his murder trial in Superior Court in Newark, despite Foster’s testimony that pointed to him as the killer. Chambers was released from jail a day later.
