Sayreville man sentenced in father’s murder

A 22-year-old man from Sayreville has been sentenced to serve 25 years in a New Jersey state prison for fatally shooting his father.

Vishal Shah was sentenced on May 17 for aggravated manslaughter in the death of his 53-year-old father, Pradipkumar Shah.

The prison term is subject to the No Early Release Act. As such, Shah will have to serve 85 percent of the term before he can be released on parole, according to information provided by Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey.

Shah pleaded guilty on March 13 to one count of aggravated manslaughter. An investigation by Detective Amy Noble of the Sayreville Police Department and Detective David Abromaitis of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined he shot his father once in their home on Lakeview Drive in the Parlin section of Sayreville on June 10, 2016, at 9:43 a.m., and then hid the weapon, a .25-caliber handgun.

Pradipkumar Shah died the following day at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.
