Middlesex County authorities want to try the five juveniles charged with the Old Bridge murder of Dr. Divyendu Sinha as adults.

Middlesex Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan announced he is seeking a waiver from Family Court, potentially increasing the punishment for anyone convicted in the June 25 attack.

Sinha was walking that night with his wife and two sons, age 12 and 16, near their Fela Drive home when five boys got out of a car and attacked him. He died three days later from a head injury sustained in the assault.

Sinha's sons suffered minor injuries, and assault charges will be filed be in those cases, according to Kaplan.
