Why yoga instructor’s son is charged in his dad’s death

A yoga instructor is facing charges in the death of a New Jersey man who died from injuries suffered while training for a fitness competition.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Monday that Michael J. DiAngelo Jr., 43, has been charged with first-degree murder in the May 20 death of John DiAngelo.

Prosecutors say DiAngelo and a third person were training at the yoga studio in East Rutherford, New Jersey, when they were killed.

The prosecutor’s office says DiAngelo died in his car while being transported to a hospital in North Carolina.

The charges were announced after the state attorney’s office filed a motion to dismiss the charges.
