Asbury Park Woman Admits Killing Her Neighbor

An Asbury Park woman pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to the 2016 killing of her 23-year-old neighbor, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

Officials say Jennie Cullum, 30, of Asbury Park, pleaded guilty to a charge of first degree Aggravated Manslaughter before Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Vincent N. Falcetano.

According to authorities, Cullum faces up to 20 years in a New Jersey state prison when she returns for sentencing on June 14, 2019. She will also be subject to the provisions of the "No Early Release Act" (NERA) requiring her to serve 85 percent of her sentence before being eligible for parole, with a mandatory five-year period of parole supervision upon her subsequent release.

The plea agreement was reached after consultation with the victim’s family.
