Pozniak, originally from Cinnaminson, was living at the residence at the time. During the seven-week trial, he took the stand and admitted to fatally bludgeoning his victims with a large pipe wrench but said he did not recall taking their lives because he was high on drugs at the time.
During the trial, Burlington County First Assistant Prosecutor Raymond E. Milavsky stated that the murders were fueled by rage because Pozniak’s relationship with Nicole Wilson was ending and he would no longer be welcome to reside in the Wilson family home.
The bodies of Nicole and Bryan Wilson were discovered the next morning by another family member who lived in the house. That family member was one of several who spoke at today’s proceeding about the anguish and intense sorrow created by Pozniak’s actions.
Under the sentence handed down by the Hon. Jeanne T. Covert, P.J.Cr., Pozniak’s sentence does not carry the possibility of parole.
“These were horrific crimes that he committed, and he will never again be a free man,” First Assistant Milavsky said following the sentencing. “This is a verdict that justice required.”
The investigation was conducted by detectives from the Mount Holly Police Department and the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office.
