A Teaneck man convicted in November of a 2010 Watchung break-in was denied a request on Monday for a new trial by Superior Court Judge Robert Reed.

The attorney for Jullian Oree, 33, argued that there was a lack of evidence placing Oree at the scene of the Nov. 23, 2010, Shady Brook Court burglary, according to NJ.com.

Watchung Police found Oree walking along Interstate 78 shortly after a vehicle fled the burglary scene and engaged in a high speed chase with police before crashing at the Watchung Reservation.

"That was probably the thing which sealed his fate," NJ.com reported Reed said when upholding the jury's decision.

Oree was convicted of third-degree burglary, second-degree theft and third-degree criminal mischief, and acquitted on a fourth-degree resisting arrest charge.
