Manchester Man Found Guilty in DWI Accident that Killed an Ocean Gate Cop

(Andy Dean, ThinkStock)

A jury finds a Manchester man guilty in the 2010 death of Ocean Gate Police Officer Jason Marles. 34-year-old Erick Uzcategui faces five to ten years in prison after being convicted of vehicular homicide for operating his BMW after allegedly consuming several drinks and taking cocaine.

According to the Asbury Park Press, Uzcategui’s attorney had argued about the validity of the blood alcohol test but the prosecutor told the jury that the defendant told police that he consumed 4 to 5 drinks and took some cocaine before getting behind the wheel early that thanksgiving morning.

Officer Marles was on his way home in Point Pleasant Beach when his SUV was struck by Uzacategui’s vehicle at around mile marker 83 on the north bound Garden State Parkway causing the officer’s SUV to spin out of control, strike a guard rail, leave the highway, overturn and burst into flames. He’s survived by two young children.
