Hackensack, NJ Man Dies from Injuries Sustained in Attack, Alleged Attacker Now Charged with Murder
A Hackensack, NJ man who was brutally beaten last week died from his wounds, leading prosecutors to upgrade charges against his alleged attacker to felony murder.
41-year-old Paul T. Calli was found bloodied in his apartment after allegedly being attacked with a broken mirror by 26-year-old Clayton Robinson. Calli was semi-unconscious in his apartment’s bedroom closet for almost 13 hours before police found him. Calli’s relatives had called police because they were worried when he didn’t show up for work.
Calli occasionally lived with Robinson. Police believe that Calli intervened when Robinson and Robinson’s girlfriend got into an argument. Police said that Robinson responded by beating Calli and attacking him with broken shards of glass. According to authorities, Robinson then stole Calli’s car and fled to the Bronx.
Shortly after police found Calli, Robinson was located in the Bronx and arrested. According to Bergen County prosecutors, Robinson waived extradition back to Bergen County. This means that he will soon be taken to Bergen County, where he will face charges.
Bergen County prosecutors initially charged Robinson with attempted murder, robbery, and auto theft. Since Calli passed away from his injuries while being treated at Hackensack University Medical Center, the charges against Robinson have now been upgraded to murder.
