West Orange NJ Man Indicted on Manslaughter Charges

West Orange NJ Manslaughter ChargesAn Essex County grand jury recently indicted a West Orange NJ man on manslaughter charges in connection with the fatal strangling of a Livingston woman earlier this year.

The suspect, a 33-year-old male from West Orange, allegedly murdered the victim at her Livingston New Jersey residence on May 15, 2016. The West Orange Police Department dispatched cops to the home, where they found the victim’s body. The victim was 32 years of age at the time of her death.

West Orange detectives investigated the homicide and determined that the suspect may have strangled the victim to death. Two days after the killing, police officers located and arrested the suspect.

The suspect was charged with second degree reckless manslaughter. Now he could be headed to trial after being indicted on the homicide charges. If the suspect is ultimately convicted of manslaughter, he could potentially be sentenced to 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison.

While awaiting trial, the suspect is currently being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark NJ on a $150K bail amount.

It is believed that the suspect and the victim knew each other, but authorities have not yet indicated whether the two were involved in a romantic relationship.
