Authorities say Terrigino was found dead in a vehicle at 12 Stenton Place in Pleasantville on the morning of February 2nd after police responded to a 911 call. An autopsy determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head.

Cops have also charged Demby with first degree possession of CDS with intent to distribute after investigators discovered and seized approximately 10 ounces of cocaine in a home where the defendant was located on February 7th.

Demby remains lodged at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
