Neptune Murder Suspect Heads For Trial

A Neptune 20-year-old risks 30 years to life in prison if he’s convicted of shooting an Asbury Park man to death last November.  Thaddeus Reevey awaits trial following Monday’s indictment by a Monmouth County grand jury in Freehold.

Asbury Park police acted on a flurry 911 calls regarding a shooting at about 6:18 PM last Election Day, November 8, say Monmouth County authorities. Police found Eric Freeman’s bullet-riddled body in the Asbury Park Village housing complex. Freeman died within 40 minutes at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

Asbury and Monmouth investigators later charged Reevey with murder and weapons counts. His bail was set, and remains, at $1,500,000 in the Monmouth County Correctional Facility in Freehold.

If convicted of murder, Reevey would spend at least 30 years in prison, subject to the No Early Release Act, which requires convicts to serve 85 percent of their time before parole eligibility. If also convicted of possession of a firearm for unlawful purpose, Reevey could receive up to 10 years, with a mandatory minimum of one-third the time without parole.
