NJ Man Convicted in Fatal Stolen Car Crash

Essex County Prosecutor's Office

A man who was fleeing police in a stolen car has been convicted of manslaughter in the death of a Newark mother and her young son.

A jury convicted a 24-year-old James Perry of Newark on Thursday on 11 counts, including manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Prosecutors say Perry was driving a stolen Acura on Nov. 25, 2008 when he crashed into a Toyota at a Newark intersection, fatally injuring 34-year-old Joselin Lizardo and her 10-year-old son, Aneudy Breton.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says Lizardo and her son were running errands blocks from their home when Perry slammed into their car.

Police say they had broken off a pursuit shortly before the crash.
