Convicted drug dealer from New Jersey charged in Federal Way murder

SEATTLE – A convicted drug dealer from New Jersey has been charged in the slaying of a 24-year-old man in Federal Way, south of Seattle.

The Seattle Times reports that 29-year-old Alfonso Senior was charged Thursday with second-degree murder, while his 22-year-old brother, Antoine Senior, was charged with rendering criminal assistance. Documents filed in King County Superior Court say both men also were charged with illegally possessing firearms.

Prosecutors allege Alfonso Senior shot and killed 24-year-old Darrell Webster Saturday morning at a gas station. They the two had fought earlier at a Tacoma bar.

Authorities say Alfonso Senior served time in New Jersey for drug charges. Last month, he was allowed to serve community supervision in Washington because he has family in Federal Way.
