Jamison

A Trenton man was recently indicted in connection with the murder of former Princeton resident George Jamison Jr., who was killed while he was waiting for a bus in Trenton in August of 2014.

Jamison, a father of three who lived in Princeton for many years and moved to Pennington in 2012, was sitting on a bus stop bench when a black male attempted to rob him at gunpoint and then fled on a bicycle.  The 43-year-old was shot in the back and was later pronounced dead at Capital Health Regional Medical Center.

Randy Washington, 34, was indicted in December on charges of first-degree murder, felony murder, robbery and related weapons offenses in connection with Jamison’s death.

Washington has also been indicted in connection with another murder in 2014.

  • Trenton is a bad place… I am sorry for your loss… it is absolutely senseless! May the thug get what he deserves…

  • As the sister of George Jamison, hearing this news, is truly a blessing to finally know he’s been indicted but I would really like to know if he will rot in prison the rest of his life or if he will receive the death penalty.
    Randy Washington was a cold heartless individual that took the life of a man who had a family, a family that consisted of his beautiful wife,his two beautiful daughters, and his handsome son. Why would someone do something so unthinkable? I still can’t answer that question, all I can say about it is, he was desperate, my brother was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
    I hope Randy Washington get what’s coming to him, innocent people shouldn’t die because of someone’s stupidity.
