The officers informed the defendant that by talking to them it could help the defendant’s case. The two victims were found in the back of a Real housewife’s of New Jersey’s Audi. The bodies were badly burnt as well. In addition to this, he was convicted of aggravated arson and attempted robbery.

It carries a minimum of thirty years in a New Jersey state prison, as well as up to life imprisonment. It also carries a fine of up to $200,000. If a defendant is sentenced to the minimum of thirty years in prison, there is no parole eligibility. This means that thebdefendant will have to serve every single day of their sentence in a New Jersey state prison. If the alleged victim was a on duty police officer, was killed because of their status as a police officer, or was under the age fourteen, then the court must impose a sentence of life behind bars.
