A convicted sex offender from Neptune City pleaded guilty today to manslaughter for administering a lethal dose of a painkiller to a man he planned to fondle.

Lloyd Edmisten, 28, faces 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on that charge, as well as on a charge of violation of community supervision for life, said Monmouth County Prosecutor Luis Valentin. Edminsten had previously been convicted of endangering the welfare of a child in 2000.

Valentin said Neptune City police, responding on Oct. 2, 2006, to a call of an unresponsive male at the Charline Motel, found Wayne Richmond, 19, of Neptune Township unconscious on a bed in Edmisten’s room.

Edmisten gave Richmond a “substantial quantity” of the painkiller Darcovet to incapacitate him and perform nonconsensual sex acts on him, the prosecutor said. Toxicology tests show Richmond had fatal levels of propoxyphene and acetaminophen, components of Darcovet, in his system when he died, Valentin said.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, Edmisten will be required to serve nearly nine years of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole. He is scheduled to be sentenced before Superior Court Judge Ronald Reisner on Sept. 26 in Freehold. Valentin said authorities reached the plea deal after receiving approval from Richmond’s family.
