3 New Jersey teens charged with videotaped immigrant death

Police: Salvadoran man beaten by trio as friend recorded. Nurse also charged: Allegedly robbed victim at hospital

Topics: New Jersey, Immigration,

Authorities in New Jersey have charged three teenagers with murder in what they say was an unprovoked, videotaped attack on an immigrant in an upscale New York City suburb.

Authorities say Abelino Mazaniego was attacked while sitting on a bench in Summit the night of July 17, then robbed by a nurse after he was taken to a hospital.

Prosecutors say the 47-year-old Salvadoran immigrant suffered severe head injuries and died July 20. Charged with murder were a 19-year-old from Morriston and an 18-year-old and 17-year-old from Summit.

Union County prosecutor Theodore Romankow says another teenager recorded video of the attack and has not been charged. He says it appears the video was circulated among teenagers in Summit.

A nurse at Overlook Hospital in Summit was charged Monday with stealing several hundred dollars from Mazaniego when he was taken to a hospital.
