Chasing New Jersey previously reported on the story surrounding Bond who was fatally shot in Newark.  Bond was the third homicide in Newark to talk place in less than 24 hours.  Surveillance images of two men near the scene of the crime were released and police were hoping to question them in regards to Bond's murder.  It is unclear at this time if the men in the images are those under arrest.
Similarly, Tevlin was fatally shot in West Orange while sitting in his parents SUV in a parking lot. Chasing New Jersey reported on how surveillance images of two men were also released in this case, but it wasn't until now that an arrest has been made.  A $25,000 reward was being offered to anyone who brought forward information that led to an arrest.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
