OLD BRIDGE - The Middlesex County prosecutor announced today that five juveniles who were previously arrested and charged in the death of Dr. Divyendu Sinha will be tried for murder as adults.

This decision comes after a Family Court judge granted a request by the Prosecutor's Office to move the case to Superior Court.

The five defendants, all of whom are residents of Old Bridge, were also charged with assaulting Dr. Sinha's sons, ages 16 and 12, during this year's attack on Dr. Sinha.

The defendants are expected to appear in court next week. A hearing date has not been set yet.
