Monroe man charged with killing father

 

††††††††† Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and Chief Michael E. Lloyd of the Monroe Police Department announced that a township man was charged this evening with fatally beating his father at their home in Monroe.

 

Andrew Grossman (DOB 12/8/75) of 32 South Rhoda Street in Monroe was charged with the murder of Ronald Grossman, 65, after an autopsy by the Middlesex County Medical Examinerís office concluded that the victim suffered head, back and neck injuries and died from blunt force trauma.

 

Mr. Grossman was pronounced dead today at 1:02 a.m. after his body was discovered by police in the home he shared with his son.

 

The victimís son was charged during an investigation by Detective Sgt. Keith Saloom of the Monroe Township Police Department and Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office.

 

The defendantís bail was set at $1 million by Superior Court Judge Michael A. Toto.

 

The investigation began when police received calls from one of the victimís friends, who was concerned after being unable to contact him. The friend subsequently filed a missing persons report.

 

Police went to the victimís home several times before obtaining a warrant to search the home and discovered the victimís body late in the evening of March 26, 2013.

 

Earlier today, police charged the son with tampering with evidence and hindering the investigation into the death.

 

The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Saloom of the Monroe Police Department at (732) 521-0222, or Investigator Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office at (732) 745-4018.

 

As is the case with all criminal defendants, Andrew Grossman is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
