Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey announced that a New Brunswick man was indicted today by a grand jury in Middlesex County on charges of stalking and fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend.
Giver Quiroz-Vasquez, also known as Gilberto Juarez-Vasques and Erick Morales Sandin, 25, was charged in New Brunswick with murder, stalking, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose in the fatal shooting on June 24, 2015 of Alicia Martinez-Izaguirr, 24, of New Brunswick.
The indictment was handed up following a presentation to the grand jury by Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Bina Desai.
Vasquez has been in custody since he was traced to New Hope, Pa., and was arrested during an intensive investigation by Detective Monica Shearer of the South Brunswick Police Department and Detective Craig Marchak of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
The investigation determined that the victim was approached at approximately 7 a.m. on June 24, 2015 by Vasquez, who had followed the woman to the parking lot of a company on Docks Corner Road in South Brunswick, shot her, and fled.
The investigation further showed the defendant borrowed a 2004 silver Volkswagen Passat from one of his friends, used the vehicle to follow the victim, and fled in the borrowed car, which later was abandoned.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Detective Shearer of the South Brunswick Police Department at (732) 329-4646, or Detective Marchak of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3254.
