TRENTON - The New Jersey State Supreme Court has overturned a South Brunswick man's murder conviction.

The court found that Michael Maltese's confession about killing his parents was improperly obtained.

The court ruled that his confession was inadmissible because it was obtained after police violated his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent by secretly recording a conversation between Maltese and his uncle.

Maltese was convicted in 2011 for killing his parents and burying their bodies in a shallow grave in Beechwood Park.
