    A Vernon Township Man man charged with killing three people in a multi-vehicle crash in Wayne will be held without bail, prosecutors said.
    Jason Vanderee of Glenwood in Sussex County made an initial court appearance Monday, where his lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. He's charged with aggravated manslaughter and death by auto while intoxicated.
    The Feb. 19 crash at a Delta gas station on Route 23 in Wayne killed 50-year-old Jon Warbeck of Fair Lawn and his 17-year-old son, along with gas station attendant Lovedeep Fatra of Pequannock.
    Prosecutors say police found nine bags of heroin and a needle in the 29-year-old's possession.
