STATE OF NEW JERSEY, PLAINTIFF-RESPONDENT,
JEFFREY COLON, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
On appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Union County, 03-10-01110-I.
NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Submitted May 23, 2007
Before Judges A. A. Rodríguez, Collester and Lyons.
Defendant, Jeffrey Colon, appeals from his conviction following a jury trial of first degree aggravated manslaughter, N.J.S.A. 2C:11-4a(1), second degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, N.J.S.A. 2C:39-4a; and third degree unlawful possession of a weapon, N.J.S.A. 2C:39-5c. The State concedes, based on the opinion issued by the Supreme Court in State v. Figueroa, 190 N.J. 219 (2007), "that co-defendant Jeffrey Colon is entitled to a new trial."
Accordingly, the convictions are vacated and the matter is remanded to the Law Division, Union County for a new trial. We do not retain jurisdiction.
