Plus:  Two plead guilty in machete killing in Howell.

A man and his nephew have pleaded guilty to the 2019 machete slaying of a Lakewood man in Howell Township.  The uncle is 32, the nephew just 20.  Both pled guilty to first degree aggravated manslaughter, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor.  The investigation revealed it was an argument between the two parties that led the men to each strike the victim in the back of the head with the machete.  The accused men from Lakewood, both confessed to striking the victim.  A combined 42 years in prison is allegedly being sought for the two men.

Can we calm down with the UFO sighting claims from Saturday night?  That thing streaking through the sky was a SpaceX flight, a Falcon 9 rocket test flight from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.  The rocket touched down on a drone ship in the Atlantic roughly nine minutes after launching.

A pop up car show that launched in Ocean City, Maryland was in Wildwood Saturday drew a rowdy crowd that outnumbered police.  Drag races in the streets and so forth.  2 people died in one of the car rally’s accidents, tragically.  One, an 18 year old pedestrian, was fatally struck while a passenger in another vehicle was killed, the investigation into the details of that incident is underway.

The state gas tax is going down this Saturday.  A whole penny a gallon.  But still, less tax.  A 2016 state law calls for an adjustment every October depending on a complicated assessment.  Last October the tax dropped by 8 cents a gallon.  NJ dot com reports that New Jersey’s gas tax will be 3 cents higher than the national average.
