Man charged with violent crime after the death of his ex

Details of a domestic crime are surfacing after a woman was shot and killed. The New Jersey woman was allegedly shot by her estranged ex as she left her home in the morning. The violent crime leaves their children without one parent and the other parent facing murder charges. 

Already forbidden from seeing his children and the mother because of a restraining order, there is no question that the relationship between the two was high-conflict. This individual was alleged to have attempted to abduct both children and also alleged to have harassed and assaulted the woman previously. A final confrontation left the woman dead. 

After the final confrontation, the man fled the scene in a vehicle. Police gave chase until the man stopped the car and shot himself. His attempt at suicide was not successful, and he is currently recovering from his injuries in a hospital. The man faces murder charges. Day care staff and others have described the woman as a caring and hard-working mother. 

A violent crime has left two children without parents and others mourning. The incident may appear like an open and shut case, but in New Jersey, individuals are considered innocent until proved guilty. The state's attorney will bear the burden of proof and must collect evidence that proves the man is guilty of the crimes for which he is charged. When facing criminal charges, any person has the right to defend themselves. If they so choose, individuals may do so with the aid of a criminal defense attorney who can work toward having the charges dismissed or reduced.
