Tacony men found guilty of first degree murder
Two Tacony men charged in a 2007 racially tinged double slaying were found guilty this morning of first degree murder.
Gerald Drummond, 26, and Robert McDowell, 28, face possible death sentences in the July 13, 2007, slayings of Damien Holloway, 27, and Timothy Clark, 15, in the 6900 block of Vandike Street.
In a concession to the end-of-year holidays, a penalty hearing will take place in January.
The jury of seven women and five men heard testimony from witnesses who told of bad blood between Drummond and Holloway over race - Drummond and McDowell are white - and because Holloway had a child with Drummond's sister.
One of Drummond's brothers, Michael, 24, was charged with intimidating a trial witness last week in a courthouse hallway. He is in custody pending a preliminary hearing on Dec. 29.

Love Monica's Mom
Praise God!!!! I knew in my heart that justice will prevail as I knew God would give my baby that!!!! I still am numb, not knowing really how to feel. We are all kind of in a fog, my one son was up at 4am the other night crying he woke me up I said what's wrong, well he failed his classes too much during this awful ordeal, and said to me I thought I'd feel better after this, but I don't. How sad and how true. People even tell me, now you can move on???? Idon't know how to answer that? I know Timmy would not want me to be sad or his brothers to be so unhappy but this is not closure for us, just closes one chapter in this nightmare we live in. We still have penalty phase to go to on Jan. 4th. I have to do my impact statement. I hope it's good, I tried. I've been writing it for over a year now. I took out some things as I was told I cannot say anything about those two. And I told the DA who did give me a subponena (sp??) that I am not going to sit there listeing to how bad their lives are, etc. etc. as my son did not get a second chance. I'm not losing pay over listening to how life was so hard on them and they deserve to live!!!! I told him I'll be here for my impact statement and for final sentencing but anything in between I'm not coming!!!!! So now we face another christmas trying to be happy that they got their just deserts and one less person in our home to celebrate, then Timmy's birthday, he would have been 19 years old. So much lost, so not fair!!!! So how do I feel???? I'm happy they got what they got, glad this trial is almost over, but it still does not bring my son back. So I'm sad too. Like a roller coaster ride, up and down up and down that's my feelings and emotions right now.
Thanks for always being here for me. The support I've gotten has really helped me thru it and I'll forever hold that in my heart. Love to you all!!!
Bette, I am so glad that things turned out the way they did. Unfortunately as you said, there is no closure for us. Our babies are still dead. Do they have the death penalty where you live? I hope so cause that is what they deserve. It's good that the trial itself was over before Christmas. I hope u can have as good a day as possible. Love ya. Darien
