Police: Hit Planned During MySpace Chats

Suspects were "exceptionally chatty" on MySpace:

Karim Sampson, and Keith L. Williams both of Trenton, and both 19 as well as another unnamed suspect were charged this past Thursday with conspiracy to commit murder in connection to the death of 20 year-old Arrel Bell.

A wanted poster has been issued for a fourth suspect.

Police allege that the entire murder was planned on MySpace, right down to the time and spot.

Last June, Karim Sampson and Arrel Bell robbed two men at gunpoint and took several hundred dollars with them, the victims subsequently then gave police descriptions of the suspects and their car, only then moments later the two were arrested and charged with multiple robbery, theft and firearm possession.

According to the article, sources state that Sampson learned of Bell's cooperation with the prosecution in the case and was marked for death.

The tragic events then followed thereafter.

A source close to the investigation called the MySpace evidence a "smoking gun" and the suspects were "exceptionally chatty" as they conspired to kill Arrel Bell.

A warrent was also served on MySpace.

UPDATE: John Murphy, 19, and Brandon Edwards, 20, have also been charged with the murder of Arrel Bell.
