A Neptune City man is being arraigned today in the murder of Sarah Stern. Liam McAtasney is charged with strangling the 19-year-old last December and then dumping her body from a bridge into the Shark River in Belmar. His friend, Peston Taylor, will testify against McAtasney after pleading guilty to helping him hide and then get rid of Stern's body. The trio were high school friends.
Prosecutors say McAtasney killed Stern for seven-thousand-dollars she'd taken out of the bank.
