New York Woman Pleads Guilty to Murdering Ex-Boyfriend, His New Girlfriend in River Edge, New Jersey
A NY woman reportedly confessed to Bergen County prosecutors that she murdered her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend at a home in River Edge, NJ.
According to law enforcement, the 42-year-old suspect drove to the residence of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend in October, 2012. The suspect had previously been involved in a lengthy relationship with the male victim.
When the suspect got to the home, which was located on Millbrook Road in River Edge, she was allegedly in possession of a .22-caliber rifle. The suspect reportedly carried the rifle into the victims’ bedroom and shot her 52-year-old ex-boyfriend six times.
After the suspect allegedly shot the male victim, the 42-year-old female victim reportedly tried to grab the weapon. The suspect then allegedly used a knife to fatally stab the victim.
After the violent attack, the suspect exited the house and drove away. She reportedly went to the Hudson River and threw the weapons, including the rifle and the knife, into the water. Law enforcement later found a rifle in the river.
Police later tracked down the suspect in Connecticut and arrested her. She was subsequently charged with several criminal offenses, including two counts of murder, burglary, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and stalking.
Now the suspect has reportedly pleaded guilty to the charges. She recently appeared in Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack and pleaded guilty to the crimes.
The suspect will have to return to Bergen County Superior Court in September for a sentencing hearing.
After pleading guilty, the suspect was returned to the Bergen County Correctional Facility. She is behind held at the jail in lieu of a $3 million bail amount.
