RED BANK, N.J. (AP) — A man who fatally stabbed a volunteer firefighter during a street confrontation last year has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter.
Monmouth County prosecutors will recommend that Demar Reevey receive a 13-year state prison term when he’s sentenced July 12. Authorities have said the 24-year-old Red Bank man and 26-year-old Andrew Hill had been feuding over Reevey’s girlfriend. The dispute culminated on May 27, when Reevey stabbed Hill once during a fight in Red Bank. Reevey’s public defender has said the two men were friends and that Reevey did not mean to hurt him. Hill worked as a hospital security officer but also was a volunteer with the Sea Bright Fire Department and the Red Bank First Aid Squad.
