A Camden County basketball coach was murdered in a car wreck on Sunday, and on Tuesday, the driver who caused the accident, who is accused of being high at the time, was freed from jail pending trial.
Jamal N. Reed, 21, of Cherry Hill, was charged earlier this month with second-degree reckless death by auto and third-degree strict responsibility vehicular murder in connection with a fatal incident that occurred on June 4. Prosecutors had requested that he be detained pending trial.
A misapprehension that Reed had been on the run from the law for six months prompted Assistant Prosecutor Narline Casimir to say that her office first intended to hold Reed in custody prior to trial.
The case did not move forward until this month because of a delayed toxicology result, Casimir said.

An automobile driven north by Reed on South Academy Street in Glassboro struck a fire hydrant and rolled over at around 8:40 p.m., according to police.
Cire Forman, 21, was ejected from the vehicle and killed instantly.
Forman, a senior at Camden Catholic High School, coached the incoming freshman girls’ basketball team.
THC levels in Reed’s blood “show marijuana ingestion at amounts capable of producing its impairing effects,” according to the criminal complaint against him, and “make this individual unsuitable to safely operate a motor vehicle on a roadway.”
According to public defender Rebecca Donnarumma’s statement before Judge Linda Lawhun, Reed has been cooperative with law enforcement and will appear in court as required.
As Donnarumma put it, “these are extremely significant accusations brought about from a very serious incident and a very painful incident which ended in the loss of a wonderful soul.” The tragedy left Reed broken and in need of mental health treatment.
She stated he has not driven since the incident but has kept his job steadily.
Donnarumma said that her client has a large, supportive family and that she has submitted multiple character letters from people who have known Reed for a long time on his behalf.
Reed was granted bail by Lawhun on the condition that he report to the court once a week, refrain from communicating with the victim’s family or a key witness in the case, and submit to random drug testing.
