New Jersey man pleads guilty in wife's murder

The relationship of a husband and wife is often difficult for an outsider to truly understand. A couple who may seem perfectly happy on the surface may actually be struggling and considering to end their relationship. In fact, law enforcement officials believe that there was likely much more going on between one New Jersey couple; the man has recently pleaded guilty to murder charges in his wife's death.

Police believe that the man murdered his 47-year-old wife in June 2017. Reports claim that after he killed her, he placed in body in a pool. He then left the home to pick up dinner for two, reportedly in an attempt to establish an alibi. He reportedly called 911 when he returned home, claiming that he just discovered his wife's body. Reports indicate that the man and his neighbors attempted to revive the woman; the body of a small dog was also found in the pool, but it is unclear how it got there.

However, six weeks after the woman's death, her husband was arrested and charged with murder, obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence. He recently pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of first-degree aggravated manslaughter. As part of the plea deal, the obstruction and tampering charges were dropped.

Prosecutors are recommending that the man receive a sentence of 15 years, with 85 percent required to be served before he is eligible for parole. When people are accused of being involved in a crime such as murder, they are forced to make multiple life-changing decisions, including whether to fight the charges in court or accept a plea deal, if offered. Because many people accused of crimes in New Jersey feel unprepared to make these decisions, they often seek guidance from an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help them carefully weigh their options and choose the one that is most appropriate for each individual circumstance.
