Two people allegedly involved in the shooting death of a New Jersey police detective will make their first court appearance Thursday.

Police picked up Jerome Wright and girlfriend Nashali Gadson last week.

Newark officer Michael Morgan was off duty when he was shot and killed.

The 32-year-old was outside a strip club in Paterson after a friend's birthday celebration when Wright allegedly tried to rob a dancer.

Morgan, who was walking the woman to her car, was shot when he tried to intervene.
