Jose Romero-Aguirre, a.k.a. “Coñejo,” 30, of the Plainfield Locos Salvatrucha (PLS) clique of the MS-13 gang set, is charged with murder and related weapons offenses for killing 22-year-old Andres Chach of Plainfield.

On January 9, 2011, Plainfield Police Division patrol units rushed to the 300 block of West Front Street in Plainfield to find Chach suffering from gunshot wounds outside of a nightclub at that location. Chach was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

An investigation involving the Union County Homicide Task Force and Plainfield Police Division, assisted by members of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Newark, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), resulted in Romero-Aguirre being identified as a suspect in the case, and he was formally charged and taken into custody earlier this month. State Superior Court Judge Regina Caulfield set bail at $1.5 million.   

Murder charges are commonly punishable by terms of 30 years to life in state prison.
These criminal charges are mere accusations. Each defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
