File under: "The bitch set me up!"

Accused killer nabbed at motel while awaiting tryst with prostitute:
Franklin Kincey, the man wanted for the murder of Hudson County corrections officer Samuel Broughton, was nabbed Friday night in an Edison hotel room, authorities said.

Friday's arrest brings to an end a month-long search for the 27-year-old East Orange resident who allegedly shot and killed Broughton and wounded fellow off-duty corrections officer Brandon Holmes the morning of Dec. 10 outside the Blue Ribbon restaurant on Summit Avenue in Jersey City.

Police had been searching for Kincey in and around central New Jersey for several days but finally located him in the Holiday Inn in Edison on Friday after learning that he was to meet a prositute there, said Hudson County First Assistant Prosecutor Guy Gregory.

Instead of a prostitute, Kincey was confronted by officers from the U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force, Edison and state police, who burst into Kincey's room using a hotel pass-key, Gregory said.

While not truly "set up" by the hooker a la Marion Barry, I think its fair to thank (or blame) her in any event. If it wasn't for her, um, service to the uh, community, this jackass may still be on the lam.
