Hillside Killer Sentenced to 100 Years

NEWARK—Quantis Goode, 32, of Hillside, was sentenced to 100 years in state prison for fatally shooting two teenagers at a Newark public housing complex in 2007.

On July 16, 2009, following a six-week trial, an Essex County Jury found both Goode and Darryl Davis, 29, of Newark, guilty of murdering 18-year-old Samad Grimes and 19-year-old Saad Rahman, both of Newark.


The two teenagers were killed over a drug-dealing territory dispute at approximately 12:30 p.m. in broad daylight on January 7, 2007.

Police determined that more than 20 shots were fired during the vicious, seven second attack in the courtyard of the Baxter Terrace public housing complex at 182 Orange Street in Newark.

The convicts were sentenced separately by Superior Court Judge Harold Fullilove.

Fullilove sentenced Goode to 50 years in state prison and ordered him to serve 30 years before becoming eligible for parole for each of the murders. The sentences are to run consecutively. Davis was given two consecutive 30-year sentences in state prison, with no parole.
