FREEHOLD — A Red Bank man has been sentenced in the gruesome stabbing of a township firefighter back in May of 2018.

Demar S. Reevey, 24, of Red Bank was sentenced to 13 years in the New Jersey State Prison on Friday, August 2nd for the murder of Andrew Hill, 26, also of Red Bank.

Hill was found stabbed to death on Tilton Street and Bank Street around 12:45 am on Sunday, May 27th, 2018. Reevey was found and arrested a short time later in connection to the slaying.

Hill was a member of the Red Bank First Aid Squad and a member of the Westside Hose Company, "He [Hill] was a very caring, sweet, and loving individual who will be deeply missed," the Red Bank First Aid Squad posted on Facebook.

Reevey pleaded guilty to first-degree Aggravated Manslaughter just a little under a year after the murder on May 6th, 2019.

The charge is subject to the No Early Release Act, which means that Reevey will be subject to serve 85% or 11.5 years of his sentence before he is considered for parole.
