JERSEY CITY AND BEYOND -- Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said on Tuesday that a Jersey City couple were found dead in their home earlier in the morning in what is believed to be a murder-suicide.
DeFazio said Jason Felder, 35, and his long-time girlfriend, Sarah Spencer, 29, were discovered in their Storms Avenue home around 9 a.m. DeFazio said it appears that it was a murder-suicide, based on the investigation at the present time.
DeFazio also said it is believed that Felder killed Spencer and then killed himself. Both were pronounced dead on the scene. DeFazio said no motive has been established on the murder-suicide.
DeFazio said a .357 caliber revolver was recovered at the scene. He also said the victims' bodies were discovered by their son.
The murder of Spencer is the 15th homicide in Jersey City so far this year. Felder's death has been ruled a suicide.
