DEPTFORD TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have made an arrest in what they say was a deadly road rage incident that occurred during a nor’easter last month.

Gloucester County prosecutors say 54-year-old Everett Moore Jr., of Clayton, was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder and two weapons offenses in the March 7 slaying of Joseph Pirri. Moore allegedly slashed the 32-year-old Blackwood man during a confrontation in Deptford Township, and Pirri died a week later from his injuries.

Prosecutors say Pirri provided police with details about his assailant and the pickup truck the man was driving. That information, along with video surveillance camera footage, led to Moore’s arrest.

Authorities declined Wednesday to provide further details on the investigation or disclose a motive, citing the ongoing investigation.

It’s not known if Moore has retained an attorney.
