In addition to the second-degree count, Andrew Halder, 35, of Woodcliff Lake, was charged with reckless driving, driving while intoxicated and displaying a fictitious inspection sticker, according to the office of acting Monmouty County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni.

Investigators say Halder and his father, Gary Halder, finished a round of golf on August 30 and were in Halder's Mini Cooper on the ramp from Route 537 West to Route 18 North in Colts Neck at about 3 PM.

Halder's car is believed to have hit a curb on the ramp, flipped over, rolled, and vaulted the elder Halder from the car. He died later at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

Authorities contend that Halder's blood alcohol level exceeded the New Jersey legal limit of .08 percent. He was arrested Monday, and posted bail set at $100,000 with an option for release on payment of 10 percent.
