Siblings charged with murdering NJ woman in her home with over $100 debt

Two siblings have been charged with murdering a woman in her New Jersey home a day after a fight over a $100 debt, newly obtained court documents show.

Travis Leiby, 34, and Brittany Murdza, 32, are charged in the fatal shooting of Starquasia Harris, 24, during a home invasion in Trenton on January 29, 2020, according to NJ.com.

Leiby and Murdza allegedly targeted Harris after the murdered woman and a relative of the suspects fought over more than $100 the day before, according to documents obtained by the outlet.

The siblings were visiting their relative when they learned of the fight.

Witnesses claimed to have seen them leaving the relative’s house and returning shortly after. A man matching Leiby’s description was seen entering Harris’ home and firing a gun, documents show.

Leiby and Murdza said they were on the street just before the murder, but left before shots were fired.

The couple, who describe themselves as brother and sister as Murdza’s mother and Leiby’s father were in a long-term relationship, were arrested in July 2020 and charged with murder, burglary and firearms, reported The media.

They are both from Trenton, but were living in Philadelphia at the time of the murder.

Both are currently being held in county jails pending appearance in Mercer County Superior Court.
