FREEHOLD – A Red Bank man has been sentenced to thirteen years in connection with the 2018 homicide of a 26-year old male in the same town, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.
In a statement released by Gramiccioni's office, Demar S. Reevey, 24, of Red Bank, was sentenced to thirteen years in a New Jersey State Prison by Judge Paul X. Escandon on Friday August 2, 2019. The charge is subject to the No Early Release Act (NERA), which means Reevey will be subject to serve 85% of the sentence before being parole eligible. Reevey will be also subject to parole supervision for five years upon his release from prison.
Reevey pleaded guilty to first degree Aggravated Manslaughter on May 06, 2019, in connection with the May 2018 killing of Andrew Hill. The plea agreement was made after consultation with the victim’s family, who were in court during the proceedings.
At approximately 12:43 a.m. on Sunday May 27, 2018, police received a 911 call reporting a stabbing victim in the area of Tilton Avenue and Bank Street in Red Bank. Police found the victim Hill at the scene. Hill was transported to Riverview Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased at 1:15 a.m. Reevey was apprehended a short time later.
