INDICTMENT HANDED DOWN IN MANSLAUGHTER CASE

An Atlantic County Grand Jury indicted an Atlantic City man on Wednesday on second-degree manslaughter and third-degree endangering of a victim in connection with the Feb. 15 death of a Florida man.

The indictment alleges that Tyvon Junne, 27, killed Charles Baker, 22, of Fort Meyers, during an altercation in which he punched and kicked the victim. The victim was found by Atlantic City Police Department Officers lying face down on the southeast corner of Hobart Avenue and Marmora Avenue in Atlantic City shortly after 10 p.m. on Feb. 15. Junne was arrested the following day, according to Chief Assistant Prosecutor John Maher, who presented the case to the Grand Jury this afternoon.

Atlantic County Medical Examiner Dr. Hydow Park performed an autopsy and determined Baker died of cardiac arrest associated with multiple blunt force injuries.

If convicted of manslaughter, a crime of the second-degree, Junne could face up to 10 years in prison and $150,000 in fines. Third-degree endangering of a victim carries a maximum sentence of five years and $15,000 in fines.
