Judge orders trial in Fairfield carjacking case

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield man identified as one of two men who did an armed October carjacking at the Summit Apartments on North Texas Street was ordered Friday to stand trial on four felony charges.

The robbery victim, who had her old Kia sedan taken from her at gunpoint on the night of Oct. 14, pointed to Javon J. Ezell in the courtroom, identifying him as the man who used a revolver to take her car and her wallet. The woman, testifying during Ezell’s probable cause hearing, said she got out of her car in her garage around 7 p.m. and was confronted by two men who drove off in her car, leaving her shaken but not hurt.

Fairfield police found the woman’s car about 30 minutes later abandoned in a church parking lot at the corner of Travis Boulevard and Union Avenue, across the street from the Spring Meadows apartments on Travion Court.

Police talked with the apartment manager the next day and got a search warrant for Ezell’s apartment that he shared with Taneya S. Talley and three young children.

A heavily armed police special operations team raided Ezell’s apartment the morning of Oct. 16. A search of the apartment turned up a loaded revolver under a bathroom sink and nearly a pound of marijuana, according to police testimony. Ezell was arrested and has been in jail for the past two months.

Ezell was ordered to stand trial on a felony charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and a felony charge of possessing marijuana for sale charge. Judge Peter B. Foor also ordered Ezell to stand trial on carjacking and armed robbery charges.

Foor reduced Ezell’s bail from $250,000 to $100,000. He also ordered Ezell to return to court Dec. 31 to be arraigned on the charges.

Before the start of Ezell’s probable cause hearing, prosecutors dropped a pair of felony charges that had been pending against Talley.
