NEW BRUNSWICK – After about four hours of deliberations, a jury convicted a 35-year-old Elizabeth man of murdering a South Plainfield resident in his home during a robbery in April 2008.
Antaine Williams, also known as Antoine, was found guilty of felony murder, aggravated manslaughter, robbery, burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary and several weapons charges. He faces the possibility of life in prison, according to Assistant Middlesex County Prosecutor Thomas Carver.
Williams shot Al Mustafa Rodriques in the chest on April 14, 2008 when he and David Jordan went to Rodriques’ home to rob it.
Jordan was convicted of felony murder, aggravated manslaughter, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and weapons offenses in connection with Rodriques’ killing last year. He is now serving life in prison.
