Two former Temple University officers charged with murder, aggravated assault, conspiracy, abuse of corpse

Two former Temple University police officers are facing murder charges in the slaying of a woman in Philadelphia.

Court records say 47-year-old Aaron Wright and 41-year-old Marquis Robinson were charged Saturday with murder, aggravated assault, conspiracy and abuse of a corpse in the death of a 24-year-old woman last week.

Reports say that the unnamed woman was Wright’s girlfriend.

The two former Temple University cops were arrested after the 24-year-old woman was found dead in her apartment in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia Friday morning

Police were initially called to the woman’s house on the 4600 block of Greene Street around 10.40am Friday morning over reports of gunshots.

Police found the dead woman inside the house, though contrary to prior reports  – they say she was not shot.

Wright was arrested at the scene. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports police have said it’s a domestic case.

A Temple spokesman says Wright resigned in 2012 but didn’t disclose why he quit the force.

The university says Robinson was on officer until Sunday, when he was fired because of the charges.

Court records didn’t list attorneys for the men.

The two were denied bail on Sunday. They are being held at Philadelphia’s Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility.
