Ordinary Violence #8

A 29-year-old Union City man was charged with murdering a woman during a domestic argument this morning, Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said. ¶

Union City Police were called to a third floor apartment on Summit Avenue near 14th Street by neighbors who heard a disturbance at around 7 a.m., officials said. ¶

Investigators believe the 29-year-old woman was strangled, DeFazio said. ¶

The man was arrested and held at Union City Police Department headquarters, he said. ¶

Two young children were also at the scene but is not clear what their relation was to the deceased woman, officials said. ¶

“Apparently there was an argument that led to the homicidal event,” DeFazio said. ¶

DeFazio declined to release the identities of the victim or perpetrator or provide further information saying that it is too early in the investigation, officials said. ¶
