SAYREVILLE - Police say that a man from Old Bridge has been charged in the murder of a 65-year-old Sayreville resident who was killed in his home yesterday.

Robert McGranahan of Rellim Drive was also charged with possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose following the death of Edward Demko Jr., who was found stabbed to death in his home.

One of McGranahan's neighbors describes him as well-mannered and respectful. Another says the 26-year-old is trouble and is scared of him following the murder charge.

Middlesex County prosecutors have not disclosed a possible motive for the slaying, but they don't believe the stabbing was a random act. They say the McGranahan and Demko knew each other, but further details on their relationship were not disclosed.
