Police Investigate Death of Man in Newark, New Jersey

Newark New Jersey Murder InvestigationNewark NJ police are investigating the death of a man inside his home on the 400 block of South 16th Street.

Newark police received a call about a person who was sick or injured. When police officers arrived at the scene, they found the 46-year-old victim lying unconscious on the ground.

Police and emergency responders attempted to revive the man, but he was unresponsive. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide and Major Crimes Task Force are working together on a joint investigation into the death.

An autopsy to determine the exact cause of death has already been scheduled. If the autopsy reveals that foul play was involved in the death, it is likely that a homicide investigation would follow.

The penalties for homicide in the State of New Jersey are severe. N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3 classifies the purposeful killing of another person as a first degree felony. Moreover, first degree murder is the most serious criminal offense in New Jersey. A conviction on first degree murder charges could result in a minimum sentence of 30 years in New Jersey State Prison. Beyond that, it is possible that the offender could be sentenced to life imprisonment.
