A Brick, New Jersey police officer was indicted this week, on charges that he harassed and stalked his former girlfriend by phone, text and social media.
Surveillance video from inside the motel shows John Alberti rummaging through seat cushions in a lounge. He later is shown face down on the couch with a lit cigarette.
A cigarette is believed to have ignited a stuffed chair in the second-floor smoking area of the 25-unit Mariner’s Cove Motor Inn in Point Pleasant Beach, according to authorities.
Autopsies were being conducted Saturday on the four people who died in a fire at a Jersey shore motel that housed some victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Eight others were also hurt in the blaze, which broke out around 5:30 a.m. at the Mariner’s Cove Motor Inn in Point Pleasant Beach.
It’s unknown just how long the 2-year-old, who relatives identified as “J.C.”, was inside the underground septic tank. Her body was found Monday night after authorities said her parents reported her missing.
Police arrested the son of the surviving victim at her home in Tuckerton.
