OLD BRIDGE — Two of five Old Bridge teenagers charged in the fatal beating of a computer scientist in June discussed the attack in text messages within an hour of the actual beating, according to an audio recording of a family court hearing released today.

Julian Daley, 16, and Christopher Conway, 17, had the text conversation shortly after they returned home following the attack on Divyendu Sinha in front of his Old Bridge residence, Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Christopher Kuberiet said during Sept. 17 family court hearing.

Kuberiet said Daley told Conway he thought they “hurt the victim to the point that he (Daley) could have broken his hand.”

Sinha died four days after the June 25 attack. Daley, Coney, Cash Johnson, 17, Christopher Tinli, who turned 18 in September, and Steven Contreras, 17, have been charged with murder.

The Star-Ledger obtained this morning audio recordings of the Sept. 17 family court hearings before Superior Court Judge Jane Cantor that led to all five teens being charged as adults in the case.

During his hearing, Johnson addressed Sinha’s family in the courtroom and asked for their forgiveness.

“I really apologize to the victim’s family and the victim,” Johnson said. “I hope one day they can forgive me and see that I’m not a monster like everybody in the media says we are. I hope they can find it in the bottom of their heart to forgive me seriously.”

Daley, Conway, Johnson, Tinli, and Contreras allegedly stopped on Fela Drive when they saw the Sinha family out for a walk shortly after 11 p.m. on June 24, authorities said. Four of the five got out of the car and attacked Sinha and his sons, police said. Authorities said Contreras, the driver, remained in the car.

They are all charged as adults with Sinha’s murder, the assault on his 12-year-old old son, and an attack on a motorist about 10 minutes before Sinha was beaten. Sinha was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick where he died four days later.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct the means by which two of the teenagers discussed the attack on Sinha. Daley and Conway held the conversation electronically by text message.
