Jersey City man sentenced for murder

On Thursday, March 5, Judge John Young sentenced Jersey City resident Golden Williamson, 34, to 30 years each in state prison for two murders that occurred in 2015 and 2016 in Jersey City.

On Nov. 21, 2019, Williamson pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree Murder related to the shooting deaths of Kevin Miles on Stuyvesant Avenue in Jersey City in January 2016 and Jersey City store owner Byunguen Lee on Bergen Avenue in Jersey City in December 2015.

Williamson also pleaded guilty to Aggravated Assault in three additional shooting incidents that occurred in Jersey City and Toms River in 2015 and 2016.

Judge Young additionally sentenced Williamson to a five-year sentence in New Jersey state prison subject to No Early Release Act for each of the Aggravated Assaults.

On July 12, 2017, Williamson and several additional co-defendants were charged in a multi-count indictment involving the alleged running of a violent narcotics network that had its origins in Jersey City but extended throughout New Jersey including Monmouth, Ocean and Salem counties.

The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Unit and Gang Task Force led the investigation in conjunction with the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and municipal police departments from Jersey City, Toms River, Wall Township and Tinton Falls.

Assistant Prosecutor Leo Hernandez and Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Roe of the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Unit represent the state in this case
