South Jersey Man Pleads Guilty to Killing Mother, Taking Her Car

A Lakewood man has pleaded guilty to killing his mother in June 2013.

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said Tuesday that 43-year-old Brian Cassidy pleaded guilty on Monday to killing 61-year-old Gail Conway.

Police arrested Cassidy after he was seen driving his mother's car, which was missing from her driveway when officers responded to check on Conway when co-workers reported she had not arrived at work.

She was found dead in her bed.

He was arrested on the same day as his mother's death and has been in jail since. His sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 6.

He was also charged with theft and weapons offenses.
