FLORHAM PARK New Jersey — A Catholic priest at the Florham Park-based Vocationist Fathers Retreat and Conference Center has been accused of threatening to kill a fellow priest and attacking him with a metal crucifix.
Father Frank Hreno is accused of threatening to kill fellow priest Emeka Okwuosa during an altercation at the Vocationist Fathers Retreat and Conference Center in Florham Park last month.
Okwuosa also alleged Hreno stabbed him in the arm with the crucifix, though Hreno has not been charged with assault, CBS New York reports, citing a criminal complaint.
The dispute started over the use of a vehicle, police said.
After the incident, Hreno was charged with making terroristic threats, and released on his own recognizance by Municipal Court Judge Gary Troxell with a condition of not having any contact with Okwuosa, police said.
