NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. -- Charges were being prepared against a North Arlington man Friday night in the killing of his wife in their garden apartment, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal told Daily Voice.
Authorities were withholding certain details while the victim's next of kin was notified, Grewal said.
Daily Voice broke the news that a possible suspect was in custody after police and homicide detectives converged at the Riverview Gardens at 1 Garden Terrace in the early afternoon.
Local police responded to a call for a welfare check from the complex's management and found the couple in the apartment, Grewal said.
The wife had been dead "at least a day," he said.
"This was a domestic violence incident," the prosecutor said. "They'd been married for a time."
The Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification joined Major Crimes Unit detectives from Grewal's office and borough police at the scene.
