Anthony DiGilio of Brick Township is charged with vehicular homicide and assault by vessel.

Ocean County prosecutors allege DiGilio’s 27-foot speedboat ran over a 17-foot boat around 1 a.m. on the Metedeconk River, killing 49-year-old Robert Post of Essex Fells. DiGilio kept going and told officials later in the day that he thought he had hit a log.

Testimony during the three-week long trial often focused on whether DiGilio had turned on the light at the front of his boat. Defense lawyers called witnesses to dispute how the prosecution’s experts estimated the speed of DiGilio’s boat.
