Ahead of the detention hearing, Passaic County Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela cautioned the families to keep their emotions at bay, according to Page Six.

“I understand you have very strong feelings and may want to blurt something out,” he said.

During the brawl, Thomas’ attorney Gregory Aprile requested the names of those involved so that he may ask that they be excluded from future hearings, Page Six reports.

Charges are pending for one person involved in the altercation, according to the outlet.

A statement from the Paterson Police Department sates that the suspects, both Paterson residents, both face charges for murder, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery, arson and possession of a firearm following their arrests last Monday.

While the 2015 Audi is registered to DePaola, the vehicle was mostly used by her son, Chris Camiscioli, 27, who was out of town after a friend had dropped him off at the airport in the car, the statement says.
