FREEHOLD – A Sayreville man has been indicted on seven counts in the May 2018 murder of a Freehold man.
Jamil S. Hubburd, 26, was charged with first-degree murder and first-degree felony murder for the May 1, 2018 attack on Jerry Wolkowitz. He was previously indicted by a Monmouth County grand jury July 9.
Wolkowitz died Oct. 18, 2018, having been hospitalized since that attack. The additional charges were handed down because of the Wolkowitz’s death.
The men did not know each other.
Freehold Township Police found Wolkowitz lying in his apartment complex parking lot with injuries to his head and body at 7:15 a.m. May 1.
“A joint investigation conducted by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and the Freehold Township Police Department revealed that Hubbard approached the victim from behind, hitting him with his fists on his head and face, before dragging him into the parking lot. The defendant then drove his motor vehicle over the victim. Hubbard then stole the victim’s car, which was later discovered abandoned on Bordentown Avenue in Sayreville,” Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said.
Hubbard was apprehended by police in Sayreville. Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutors Katherine Butler and Keri-Leigh Schaefer are handling the case for the State.
