Siblings accused of murdering New Jersey woman at her home with over $100 in debt

Two siblings were charged with the murder of a woman at their home in New Jersey one day after a dispute over a $100 debt, newly obtained court documents show.

Travis Leiby, 34, and Brittany Murdza, 32, are accused of fatally shooting 24-year-old Starquasia Harris during a home invasion in Trenton on Jan. 29, 2020, according to NJ.com.

Leiby and Murdza allegedly targeted Harris after the murdered woman and a relative of the suspects got into a $100 argument the day before, according to documents obtained by the outlet.

The siblings had been visiting their relatives’ home when they found out about the fight.

Witnesses claimed to have seen the two leave the relative’s home and return shortly thereafter. A man matching Leiby’s description was seen entering the Harris home and firing a gun, documents say.

Leiby and Murdza claimed they were on the street moments before the murder but drove away before gunshots rang out.

The couple, who describe themselves as siblings since 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, the outlet reported.

Both are originally from Trenton but were living in Philadelphia at the time of the murder.

The two are currently remanding in county jails awaiting their appearance in Mercer County Superior Court.
