Police interview shows man ID’ing roommates in killing of Army vet

TRENTON — A man who claims to have seen Danuweli Keller execute Liberian immigrant and Army veteran Dardar Paye in a Trenton basement six years ago identified many of the suspects during a 2011 police interview played in court Wednesday.

The video, which the jury in the murder trial for Danuweli “Pele” Keller and Mack “Mack Weezy” Edwards started watching Tuesday, shows the 2011 interview of witness Ray Manigo by two detectives.

Manigo is a former roommate of Keller and Edwards who on Tuesday testified on the stand – before the video was played – that he fabricated witnessing the killing.

Keller and Edwards, along with several friends, Abdutawab “Bonesy” Kiazolu, Phobus “Foku” Sullivan and William “Paperboy” Brown, are accused of kidnapping, robbing and killing Paye in a Monmouth Street basement in January 2011.

They were charged after police pulled over a Buick shortly after the killing and found Paye’s body stuffed in the trunk. The car was driven by Sullivan with Edwards as the passenger, prosecutors have said.

Around the same time, police pulled over another van driven by Kiazolu and found evidence including bloody tiles and a jacket inside.
