Autistic Teen Accused For Murdering Parents, Sister, And A Family Fellow Ordered To Remain Imprisoned

A teen charged with fatally shooting his parents, sister and a family fellow have been ordered to remain detained while he awaits trial.

Defense lawyers for 18-year-old Scott Kologi had sought to have him shifted to a psychiatric facility.

A judge ruled Tuesday he will stay detained in Monmouth County.

Kologi meets four counts of first-degree manslaughter, and one count of second-degree possession of a weapon for an illegal purpose, stemming from the shooting at his family’s house in Long Branch on New Year’s Eve 2017.

According to law enforcers, on Dec. 31, 2017, nearby 11:45 p.m., police responded to the home at 635 Wall St. for a report of a shooting. Scott, then 16, was held at the residence.

As part of the inquiry, a rifle was secured and later known as the weapon used in the homicides. Four people inside the home were lifeless.

The victims were recognized as the suspect’s father, Steven Kologi, 44; mom Linda Kologi, 42; sister Brittany Kologi, 18; and family acquaintance, Mary Schultz, 70. The teen’s 20-year-old brother and grandfather were able to dodge the attack.

Officials told the gun used in the killings was lawfully registered to a member of the household.

Officials haven’t disclosed a possible reason for the shooting. The case initially was housed in Family Court but last month a judge allowed prosecutors’ request to move it to adult court.
