TRENTON GANG MEMBER CONVICTED OF FIRST-DEGREE MURDER IN 2020 BRISTOL TOWNSHIP KILLING

Robert Christie

A gang member from New Jersey was convicted on Friday, Oct. 6, 2023, for the January 2020 killing of Joshua Mcrae whose body was left on Interstate 295 in Bristol Township.

Robert S. Christie, 37, of Trenton, was found guilty by a Bucks County jury of first-degree murder, flight to avoid apprehension, hindering apprehension, possession of an instrument of crime, and abuse of a corpse.

President Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr., deferred sentencing to a later date. 

Christie was charged last August, along with two other Trenton men, following an exhaustive investigation by the Pennsylvania State Police and Bucks County Detectives and a recommendation by the Bucks County Investigating Grand Jury. 

During the weeklong jury trial, Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher W. Rees presented testimony from several witnesses, law enforcement officers and the forensic pathologist examiner, and evidence that included extensive electronic surveillance, video footage, audio recordings, and cellphone and social media data.
