Captain Marshawn Love has acknowledged leaving the scene of former Neptune police Sgt. Philip Seidle’s shooting of his ex-wife, but contends he wasn’t the commanding officer at the scene and that he was directed to bring the couple’s 7-year-old daughter to police headquarters.
Asbury Park city manager Michael Capabianco on Friday upheld charges of incompetency, neglect of duty and three other allegations against the 21-year police veteran, agreeing with acting police chief Anthony Salerno’s recommendation to demote him to sergeant, said Love’s attorney, Richard Incremona.
