Barnegat, NJ, charged with endangerment after boy died
A 29-year-old man from Barnegat has been charged with endangering children following an incident that resulted in the death of a child last spring, authorities said.
Christopher Gregor surrendered to Barnegat Township Police on Friday, according to Ocean County District Attorney Bradley Billhimer.
On April 2, the death of a 6-year-old boy at Southern Ocean Medical Center in Manahawkin prompted a response from Stafford Township police, the prosecutor said.
Detectives from the Ocean County District Attorney’s Office and the High Tech Crime Squad’s Major Crime Unit recovered evidence that Gregor had committed acts of abuse against the child nearly two weeks earlier, the March 20.
Gregor remained in the Ocean County Jail on Monday, awaiting a detention hearing.
Billhimer stressed that the child’s death remained an ongoing investigation, and no further details were given.
In addition to local law enforcement, the prosecutor also thanked Manalapan Police and a Tennessee City Police Department (Alcoa) for their efforts to support the case.
