14-year-old charged in shooting death of New Jersey crash victim

TRENTON, N.J. - A 14-year-old boy has been charged with felony murder in the shooting death of a Hunterdon County, New Jersey man.

Mercer County prosecutors said the teen is also charged with murder, robbery and weapons counts stemming from the December 21 death of Brian Ficzko, 40.

Ficzko, of Flemington, was found in his vehicle by Trenton police after it struck a pole and another vehicle.

He was taken to a hospital where doctors discovered he had been shot in the chest. He was pronounced dead there a short time later.

The teen's name was not released due to his age. He was arrested Friday and is being held in a youth detention center.
