Last week, the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office announced charges against Michael Tsamas, 32 in connection to the death of Joseph Delgardio.

Around 6:15 p.m. on May 26, police in Jackson Township, New Jersey, responded to a highway for a man lying in the road in a pool of blood, according to prosecutors.

When officers arrived, they found Delgardio with a severe wound to his neck.

Life-saving measures were unsuccessful and Delgardio was pronounced dead at the scene, prosecutors said.

Investigators determined Tsamas was hired by Verizon to solicit customers door-to-door, according to prosecutors. Tasmas knocked on Delgardio’s door and the victim said he was not interested.

A short time later, the two men got into a confrontation on the street and Tsamas stabbed the victim, according to prosecutors. The suspect was arrested at the scene.

Officers charged Tsamas with murder and he was booked into jail.
