EDISON - The wife of an Old Bridge man beaten to death three years ago spoke to News 12 New Jersey on Wednesday as she awaits the suspects' sentencing.

Alka Sinha says she was walking with her husband, Divyendu Sinha, back in June 2010 when a group of high school football players violently beat him on the street. Three of those suspects, Julian Daley, Christopher Conway and Steven Contreras, either pleaded guilty or were convicted on serious charges.

However, Christian Tinli and Cash Johnson, the two others accused in the case, were recently acquitted on some of the charges they faced.

An online petition in support of Sinha has garnered 7,000 signatures. She says she is unsure about appealing the ruling, but will likely pursue civil action.

All five defendants involved in the beating are set to be sentenced on Friday, Oct. 18. Sinha says she will ask the judge to impose the maximum punishment.
