ATLANTIC CITY – A Woodbine man was arrested in Pleasantville and charged with murdering a man in Atlantic City on New Year’s Day.

In a press release issued by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, police arrested Vincent C. Oglesby, 30, of Woodbine, on Wednesday, Jan. 3, and charged him with the murder of Richard Vincent O’Brien III two days earlier. As of Thursday, Jan. 4, Oglesby, also known as “Finesse,” was lodged in the Atlantic County jail pending a detention hearing.

Police were called to the unit block of South California Avenue on Monday, Jan. 1, at 6:15 a.m., for the report of a man bleeding. O’Brien, 50, was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, where he later died from his wounds. It is alleged that Oglesby stabbed O’Brien in the neck, the prosecutor’s office said. According to the affidavit of probable cause in the case, the incident was recorded on a surveillance camera and Oglesby admitted to stabbing O’Brien in a van.

Oglesby was charged with first-degree murder, third-degree possession of a weapon to use against a person, and fourth-degree possession of a weapon for other than its intended purpose.

This incident is being investigated by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and the Atlantic City Police Department.
