Isaiah Stokes, 41, was indicted on second-degree murder charges in New York City this weekend.
Stokes appeared in one episode of “Law and Order: SVU” and is also known for being in “Boardwalk Empire.”
According to CNN, Stoke is accused of a February murder in Jamaica, Queens. It’s reported he fired into a parked car killing 37-year-old victim Tyrone Jones.
The district attorney’s office told CNN Stokes there is surveillance footage that shows Stokes “exiting a vehicle parked near the intersection of Linden Boulevard and 200th Street and then approaching the driver’s side window of a white Jeep Grand Cherokee” before shooting.
The Sun reveals Jones was waiting to meet a friend at a lounge that afternoon. The motive is unclear at this time. However, in the same article it is speculated that Jones and Stokes were still fighting over a woman since October 2020.
Stokes also faces two counts of criminal weapon possession charges. He appeared yesterday, July 19, in court. If convicted, he could face 25 years to life.
