NEWARK, NJ – Acting Essex County Prosecutor Robert D. Laurino announced today that an Essex County jury has convicted Ivery Brinson, 29, of Newark of aggravated manslaughter for killing Narendrak Patel, 52, of Parsippany. 

Following a trial before the Honorable John Zunic, Judge of the Superior Court, in addition to aggravated manslaughter, Brinson was also found guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, felony murder, conspiracy to commit carjacking, carjacking, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Assistant Prosecutor Purva Deshpande, who tried the case with Assistant Prosecutor Anthony Scibetta, said, “This was a horrid crime committed against a hardworking business owner. It is our hope that the guilty verdict will bring a measure of comfort to the Patel family.’’

On June 19, 2013 the defendant, his two brothers and a cousin entered the Irvington Mini-Market located at 130 Myrtle Avenue in Irvington.  The defendant pointed a handgun at the victim and announced a robbery, saying “You know what it is.”

Mr. Patel pulled out a wooden stick.  Before he could do anything with the stick, the defendant fired three times and struck the victim one time in the torso.  The four males then robbed the cash register and left the store. As they ran off, they saw a 74-year-old man parking in the driveway. The defendant pointed the gun at that man and carjacked him. The four men entered the car and drove it the Bradley Court Housing Complex in Newark where they abandoned the vehicle.

The three co-defendants have all pled and are awaiting sentencing. The co-defendants are Shakil Brinson, 25, Deion Brinson, 21, and Carnell Colbert, 26, all of Newark.

Sentencing for Ivery Brinson is scheduled for Aug. 3. When he is sentenced by Judge Zunic, he faces life in prison. Brinson has a prior conviction for reckless manslaughter from 2009.
