Partial Acquittal in Alleged Murder of Essex Fells Man

A jury in Newark has acquitted one of two defendants charged with the murder of a 91-year-man who was strangled in 2010.

Reginald Anthony (Essex County Prosecutor’s Office)

Reginald Anthony was acquitted on murder, felony murder, conspiracy, robbery, and weapons counts Wednesday in state Superior Court. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit burglary.

Anthony faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. He would have faced up to life in prison if he’d been convicted of murder.

Robert Nevius was found in his home in Essex Fells in April 2010. Prosecutors say he was killed during a robbery after Anthony gave the victim’s wife a ride to New York. Anthony’s aunt was the couple’s regular driver.

Anthony testified he waited outside and that an accomplice, Shaun Woodson, robbed and killed Nevius.

Woodson is awaiting trial.
