Ocean County prosecutors say 40-year-old Jesus Arellano-Carmoni of Lakewood pleaded guilty Monday to leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

The charge stemmed from a Dec. 16 accident in which Edward Juarez was struck and killed while walking to his family’s apartment in Lakewood.

Arellano-Carmoni was arrested about a week later, after police conducted a road block near the accident scene. They soon learned a van — covered by a tarp — had been parked at a nearby home since the night the accident occurred.

Arellano-Carmoni is due to be sentenced May 25.
