New Jersey man sen­tenced to 30 years in road rage killing

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - WEATHER -

EL­IZ­A­BETH >> A New Jersey man who rammed his BMW into a liv­ery cab driver dur­ing an ar­gu­ment while his 16-month-old son was in the car has been sen­tenced to 30 years in prison.

A jury in Union County con­victed Em­manuel John in Novem­ber of ag­gra­vated man­slaugh­ter and child en­dan­ger­ment for the 2017 at­tack in a strip mall park­ing lot.

Au­thor­i­ties say the men ar­gued over a dinged car door. John then al­legedly beat 45-year-old Im­ran Ma­sood be­fore run­ning his car into him when Ma­sood tried to take a pic­ture of his li­cense plate.

Ma­sood, of Avenel, never re­gained con­scious­ness and died sev­eral weeks later.

The 33—year-old John, of El­iz­a­beth, must serve at least 85 per­cent of the first 22 years of his sen­tence and then a con­sec­u­tive eight-year sen­tence.
