27-year-old Jeffrey Holland began a two-day rampage Friday when he strangled 21-year-old Tiniquah Rouse, an ex-girlfriend of his, in a bathtub.
The next day, he shot and killed two other people at another home; another ex-girlfriend, 23-year-old Ashley Jones and her boyfriend Jarrell Marshall, 28. Ms. Jones had a restraining order against Jeffrey, and he had one against her.
Three young children were in the home that served as the second crime scene, two of which were his; a 4-year-old boy and a 1-year-old girl.
He was arrested on Tuesday and charged with murder, endangering the welfare of children, and contempt of a restraining order.
He’s being held in a Newark jail in lieu of $2.5 million bail.
