$1M bail for man charged in Camden double slaying

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - September 24, 2011

Twenty-three-year-old Michael McNeil faces two counts of murder in the Sept. 6 slayings of 27-year-old Taurean Gilmore and 34-year-old Husani Boone. Boone was pronounced dead at the scene, while Gilmore died a short time later at a nearby hospital.

Camden County prosecutors say a motive for the shootings remains under investigation. But they say a witness reported seeing McNeil approach the car the men were in and fire "multiple shots" into the vehicle.

Investigators recovered a .32-caliber handgun at the scene. But it's not clear whether that weapon was used in the shootings.

It wasn't known Saturday if McNeil had retained an attorney.
