An Ocean County jury acquitted Anthony DiGilio of Brick Township of vehicular homicide and assault by vessel charges on Tuesday. They had started deliberations on Monday afternoon.

Prosecutors claimed DiGilio’s 27-foot speedboat ran over a 17-foot boat on the Metedeconk River, killing 49-year-old Robert Post of Essex Fells. DiGilio kept going and told officials later in the day that he thought he had hit a log.

Testimony during the three-week long trial often focused on whether DiGilio had turned on the light at the front of his boat. Defense lawyers called witnesses to dispute how the prosecution’s experts estimated the speed of DiGilio’s boat.
