An Ocean County jury found a Barnegat man guilty of aggravated manslaughter and child endangerment for the 2021 death of his son.
Christopher Gregor was accused of abusing his son, Corey Micciolo, leading to the child’s death.
The case focused on two key dates in 2021 - March 20 - the day Gregor allegedly injured his son by placing him on a treadmill even as the child repeatedly fell off - and April 2 - the day the boy died.
Security video from March 20, 2021, captured Gregor allegedly placing the boy on a treadmill over and over again as he struggled to maintain his footing. The gym was located inside the Atlantic Heights apartment complex in Barnegat where Gregor lived. Corey is seen falling off the treadmill half a dozen times. Prosecutors say this led to bruising on the boy’s body.
The jury rejected a murder charge.
Gregor faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced.
