    A New Jersey man who rammed his BMW into a livery cab driver during an argument while his 16-month-old son was in the car has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

    A jury in Union County convicted Emmanuel John in November of aggravated manslaughter and child endangerment for the 2017 attack in a strip mall parking lot.

    Authorities say the men argued over a dinged car door. John then allegedly beat 45-year-old Imran Masood before running his car into him when Masood tried to take a picture of his license plate.

    Masood, of Avenel, never regained consciousness and died several weeks later.

    The 33--year-old John, of Elizabeth, must serve at least 85 percent of the first 22 years of his sentence and then a consecutive eight-year sentence.
