Orange NJ Man Gets Prison for Aggravated Manslaughter in Newark

Orange NJ Manslaughter SuspectAn Orange New Jersey man is headed to prison for a long time after he pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter charges.

The suspect is a 36-year-old resident of Orange, NJ. According to Essex County prosecutors, he shot and killed another person on February 14, 2016.

The victim, a 31-year-old Newark NJ man, was killed while riding in a motor vehicle. After shooting the victim, the suspect allegedly took his body to Rose Terrace in the South Ward of Newark and dumped it in a driveway.

The next day, the victim’s remains were found.

The Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office conducted a joint investigation into the homicide and identified the suspect as the shooter. The suspect was placed under arrest in March 2016.

Prosecutors initially charged the suspect with first degree murder, but those charges were later reduced to aggravated manslaughter and unlawful possession of a handgun when the suspect reached a plea agreement.

Now the suspect has been sentenced on the manslaughter charges. An Essex County Superior Court judge approved the plea deal and sentenced the suspect to a term of incarceration of 23 years in NJ State Prison. Additionally, the suspect will have to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence under the terms of the No Early Release Act (NERA).
