Reputed gang member's second trial in killing of Jersey City father of four

04:58 |


Closing arguments will be heard this morning in the second murder trial of a man charged with gunning down a Jersey City father of four on Clinton Street in December 2008. The first trial of Darnell Reeves, 26, of Jersey City, on charges of killing Henry Molesky, 41, near West Side Avenue, ended in a hung jury in September. The jury was also deadlocked on a gun charge he faced. Reeves, a reputed high-ranking Bloods street gang member, is facing 30 years to life in prison if convicted. After closing arguments, the jury will be instructed on the law pertinent to the charges and will then begin deliberating. On the witness stand yesterday morning, Timothy Williams testified for the state that after the murder, Reeves told him Molesky had gotten out of his car and came at him with something in his hand and Reeves shot him. "He said he (Molesky) fell on the ground and he could still hear his head hitting the ground," said Williams of the conversation with Reeves. Williams was the first person charged with killing Molesky, but he was later cleared by detectives and the charges against him were dropped. Under cross-examination by Reeves' attorney, Adrienne Edward, Williams admitted he had been drinking that night. Reeves' stepbrother, Nicquan Scott, was charged in Molesky's murder, but he was acquitted on the murder charge but convicted on a weapons charges. A third man had been considered a "person of interest" in the killing but was never charged. After the state rested its case yesterday afternoon, Edward told Hudson County Superior Court Judge Lisa Rose that she would not be calling witnesses. Reeves told the judge he had chosen not to take the stand. The jury was dismissed at about 2:45 p.m. and told to return today at 9 a.m. in Rose's courtroom inside in the Hudson County Administration Building in Jersey City.
