Lt. John Formisano is charged in the fatal shooting of his wife last Sunday and wounding another man who was at the residence, NJ Advance Media reported.

On June 7, Formisano filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.

Formisano “went in the front door,” Thomas Verrone, a retired sheriff’s officer and a neighbor told the paper. “He shot the boyfriend three times and he shot the wife two times. She ran out of that house, went to next-door neighbor banging on the door, yelling she had been shot. But it was late at night so no one answered.”

He said Formisano followed her to a neighbor’s house and shot her several more times. “She fell there,” he said.

Formisano allegedly said he went to the house to drop off something when he suspected there was another man in the home. He allegedly told detectives he “blacked out” before he shot the victims.

Pennsylvania woman charged with DUI bites officer during arrest, prosecutors say

New Jersey prosecutors said a Pennsylvania woman has been charged with driving under the influence after she allegedly took off from police on Saturday, attacked multiple officers and even bit one in the leg as she was arrested.

A New Jersey State Park police officer said he’d tried to stop Jessica Hayes, 30, when she was leaving Island Beach State Park because she was going over 70 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The officer said Hayes “ignored commands to pull over and continued out of Island Beach State Park at a high rate of speed,” according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

PHILLY GIRL, 9, CRITICALLY INJURED AFTER LIGHTING FIREWORK INSIDE HOME, REPORT SAYS

Prosecutors said she continued to drive “reaching speeds of 60 miles per hour while weaving in and out of traffic.” The officer decided to stop pursuing her “due to the substantial risk of injury to the public.”

Later, Seaside Park Police were said to have spotted Hayes at a bank and questioned her.

BODIES OF MARRIED COUPLE PULLED FROM RIVER IN PENNSYLVANIA, CHILD FOUND IN CAR NEARBY: POLICE

Hayes, of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, a half hour from Philadelphia, allegedly “displayed signs of intoxication” at the bank, and officers conducted field sobriety tests.

However, once police tried to arrest her, she allegedly attacked two Seaside Park officers, causing minor injuries, and bit a New Jersey State Park police sergeant on his leg.

Prosecutors said it seemed the injured officers “will all be OK.”

“We are lucky no one else was injured by her reckless behavior on a very busy Saturday at the Jersey Shore,” Ocean County prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said.

It wasn’t clear whether Hayes had an attorney; a message left for her Saturday by The Associated Press wasn’t immediately returned.

Hayes was being evaluated at a local hospital and will be transported to the Ocean County Jail once she is medically cleared, according to prosecutors.

Hayes also was charged with eluding, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, obstructing the administration of law, and several motor vehicle violations.

Volunteers rush to transport shelter animals threatened by Barry out of storm’s path

A multistate rescue effort helped secure and transport more than 120 cats and dogs to safety on Friday, removing them from shelters in Louisiana in anticipation of Tropical Storm Barry.

The D.C. based Humane Rescue Alliance teamed up with St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey to rescue the animals from two Louisiana shelters, St. Landry Animal Care and Control and St. Martin Animal Shelter, which are located in the path of the storm.

BARRY MAKES LANDFALL IN LOUISIANA AFTER WEAKENING BACK TO TROPICAL STORM

Both Lousiana shelters house their animals outdoors, creating an even greater potential for danger and the rescue efforts were intended to free up local shelters to deal with anticipated structural damage and an influx of displaced animals in the state as a result of the storm that is expected to bring 70 mph winds and dangerous storm surge throughout the weekend.

The animals were flown to Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia where they were then distributed to local animal shelters.

“We are proud to assist our fellow shelters in Louisiana and provide a safe haven for the animals as the region prepares for potentially devastating storms,” Lisa LaFontaine, president and CEO of HRA said in a statement. “As we head into hurricane season, the Humane Rescue Alliance and St. Hubert’s stand ready to take in homeless animals in the path of natural disasters with open arms and find loving homes for them in the region.”

The animals were flown to Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia where they were then distributed to local animal shelters including the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, Angels of Assisi, Humane Rescue Alliance, St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA and Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

The rescue mission was the first since the D.C. rescue group and the New Jersey-based animal center merged on Tuesday with the specific mission of furthering the St. Hubert’s WayStation program, an animal transport program that cares for homeless or displaced animals, particularly during natural disasters, according to the Humane Society.

“By enriching the organizations on both ends of animal transports, we can weave a safety net for animals in every corner of the country,” LaFontaine said in a statement Tuesday.

An overturned garbage truck in New Jersey blocked a major route out of New York City during the afternoon commute Wednesday, one of the biggest travel days of the year.

The orange Union City Department of Public Works truck flipped over a stone wall and landed upside down on an embankment on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel.

The accident happened around 1 p.m., a Port Authority spokesman said, according to NorthJersey.com. As a result, vehicles heading west on Route 495 were held at the tunnel as crews worked to clear the accident.

The New York Post reported that at least 12 people were injured in the accident. Officials told the Associated Press that one person was in critical condition.

Bus service from a major New York City hub, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, was initially suspended but resumed at around 5 p.m. Cars were being diverted to the Holland Tunnel and the George Washington Bridge, causing widespread delays on Manhattan’s West Side.

Officials said passengers from New York should use PATH, New Jersey Transit and ferries to cross the Hudson River into New Jersey; drivers should use the Holland Tunnel as an alternate route.

Army widow on Tunnel to Towers’ gift of a mortgage-free home: ‘It means everything’

An Army widow whose husband died in Iraq was given a mortgage-free home in New Jersey by the non-profit organization Tunnels to Towers.

“It means everything,” Stephanie Wildrick told “America’s Newsroom” host Bill Hemmer on Wednesday alongside the Tunnel to Towers CEO, Frank Siller.

Frank Siller founded Tunnel to Towers in honor of his brother Steven, who ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel on 9/11 with 60 pounds of gear and died trying to save New Yorkers in the Twin Towers.

Stephanie’s husband, Ronald H. Wildrick Jr., was killed by an IED while serving in Afghanistan in 2011. He left behind his loving wife and two daughters Kaylee and Leah.

“As an only parent, you worry about the future of your kids and not knowing if you’ll be able to afford your own home,” Stephanie said of her life after her husband’s death.

LUCIA SUAREZ SANG: I’M A PROUD (NEW) AMERICAN – AND THIS HAPPENED WHEN I SAID MY FIRST PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE

Frank Siller said that the Wildricks “paid a tremendous price,” and understood that although a home could never replace the loss of their beloved husband and father, he hoped it could take some of the financial burden off of Stephanie’s shoulders.

“Her husband gave his life for our freedom, independence and safety,” Siller said. “I think it’s important as a country we make sure we take care of these families left behind.”

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation, with the help of other organizations, frequently helps support families who have lost loved ones serving the country, as well as injured veterans. Last week, Siller announced that the Foundation was seeking donations to pay for a home for the family of Cpl. Jose ‘Speedy’ Espericueta, who was shot and killed in the line of duty in the border town of Mission, Texas.

HARRIS FAULKNER: THIS FOURTH OF JULY, LET’S SALUTE OUR MILITARY FAMILIES —  THEY SACRIFICE FOR OUR FREEDOM, TOO

Siller also said he’s reaching out to the families of nine Americans who lost their lives in Iraq, and five who died in Syria, in an attempt to make a difference in their lives as he did for the Wildricks.

During an emotional ceremony on Monday, the youngest Wildrick daughter, Leah, said she knew her father would be happy with the work Tunnels to Towers did for her family.

“It is amazing knowing that my sister and mom will have a place to call home,” the girl said. “One thing I know for sure is that my dad is looking down right now and very proud of what this organization is doing for us.”

NJ judge slammed for pointing out accused teen’s ‘good family’ in rape case: report

A New Jersey family court judge was reprimanded by an appeals court panel last month for refusing to try a 16-year-old boy accused of raping an intoxicated girl and sharing video of the alleged assault with friends as an adult because he was “from a good family,” and Eagle scout and attended an “excellent school,” reports said.

The 16-year-old boy identified only as G.M.C. in court documents allegedly raped a “visibly intoxicated” 16-year-old girl identified by the pseudonym “Mary” while the two were drunk at a pajama party in New Jersey, prosecutors said. The boy is accused of filming himself and sending the video out to friends for months after the assault.

FLORIDA MAN, 18, ALLEGEDLY DRUGGED, SEXUALLY ASSAULTED GIRL, 15, POSTED NAKED VIDEO OF HER ONLINE: POLICE

“When your first time having sex is rape,” G.M.C. allegedly texted friends with the video days after the party. Several of the friends told investigators Mary’s body was drooping during the assault, at least one adding that her head was also banging against the wall, The Hill reported. It was not clear in court documents where in New Jersey the alleged assault took place.

The Monmouth County prosecutor’s office recommended in September 2017 that G.M.C. be tried as an adult, describing his actions as “both sophisticated and predatory.”  But Judge James Troiano of Superior Court reportedly denied the waiver and scolded prosecutors for not explaining to the girl and her mother “the devastating effect” pressing charges would have on “G.M.C.’s life.”

“He is clearly a candidate for not just college but probably for a good college,” Troiano of Superior Court wrote. He added that the “young man comes from a good family who put him into an excellent school where he was doing extremely well.”

An appellate court reversed Troiano’s decision last month in a 14-page ruling only recently picked up by The New York Times and local affiliates. The panel sharply admonished the judge and warned against showing bias in sexual assault cases toward privileged teenagers, the Times reported.

“That the juvenile came from a good family and had good test scores we assume would not condemn the juveniles who do not come from good families and do not have good test scores from withstanding waiver application,” the panel wrote, according to The Huffington Post.

Salmonella outbreak linked to fresh papayas sickens at least 62 people in 8 states, CDC says

Dozens of people in eight U.S. states have been infected with a strain of salmonella after eating fresh papayas imported from Mexico, according to federal health officials.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that 62 people have so far been infected with the strain of Salmonella Uganda, of which 23 have been hospitalized.

The illnesses started on dates ranging from Jan. 14 to June 8, with most of the illnesses occurring since April.

“Epidemiologic evidence and early product distribution information indicate that whole, fresh papayas imported from Mexico and sold in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island are a likely source of this outbreak,” the CDC said.

While no deaths attributed to Salmonella have been reported, the agency is advising that consumers in those states not eat any, whole fresh papayas from Mexico. Health officials are also advising people not to eat fruit salads or other mixes that include papayas from Mexico.

“If you aren’t sure the papaya you bought is from Mexico, you can ask the place of purchase,” the agency states. “When in doubt, don’t eat the papaya. Throw it out.”

Of those sickened so far, 24 were in New York, 14 were in Connecticut and 12 were in New Jersey.

Symptoms of salmonella usually develop 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria, with most people developing diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment.

“In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized,” according to the CDC. “Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other places in the body.”

Federal health officials say that children younger than 5-years-old, pregnant women, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The CDC estimates that Salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths in the U.S. every year. Food is the source for about 1 million of those illnesses, according to the agency.
