Yelp Murder Case Continued

The cases against two people charged in the shooting death of a Manchester fry cook was continued Thursday until next month.

James Goolsby, 28, of Cleveland Avenue in Hartford, is charged with the murder of Norris Jackson, a crime that police say may have been prompted in part by negative Yelp reviews of the restaurant.

Goolsby, who is being held on $1 million bail, had his case continued to Feb. 5. His girlfriend, Leanne Robitaille, 23, who also worked at the restaurant, Bonchon Chicken, is charged with hindering prosecution. Her case was continued to Feb. 6.

There was an ongoing dispute between the couple and Jackson, and recent negative reviews of Bonchon Chicken on Yelp “could have been a culminating factor” in the fatal shooting, police spokesman Capt. Christopher Davis has said.
