Ex-boyfriend arrested in slaying of NJ teen

Posted: Updated:
East Orange, N.J. (AP) -

The ex-boyfriend of a northern New Jersey teenager found dead in her home last week has been arrested on murder charges.

Almuqqadin Means, 18, of East Orange was caught around noon Monday in Newark and was arrested without incident, Essex County prosecutors said. He was being held on $750,000 bail, and his first court appearance had not been scheduled as of late Monday afternoon.

A warrant for Means' arrest had been issued Thursday, one day after the body of Aquilla Flood, 17, was found in her East Orange home. Means also faces weapons charges stemming from the slaying.

Prosecutors allege Means somehow sneaked into the home and shot Flood in the head early Wednesday. She was found dead by her mother hours later.
