The charges made by the Prosecutor's Office are merely an accusation and not proof of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

An Atlantic City man was arrested in Hamilton Township at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Sunday and charged with the murder of James Jordan, 25, of Atlantic City, according to a press release from the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
