Report: Plumstead man accused of stabbing wife in face, neck, chest, torso
Prosecutors Tuesday called Arthur Haskoor — out of a hospital for a drug overdose, and before a Superior Court Judge on charges of stabbing his wife to death at their home in Plumstead — a danger to the community as they sought to increase his $1 million bail, NJ.com reports.
Supervising Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor William Porter told a judge the crime was "particularly personal, angry and heinous," according to the report. The judge noted Susan Haskoor sustained wounds to her face, neck, chest and torso, according to the report.
Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels said he would conduct an informal review of the bail Wednesday, but a formal bail hearing is scheduled for next week, according to the report.
As previously reported by New Jersey 101.5, when authorities arrived at the home, they found Susan Haskoor dead of stab wounds in the driveway, officials have said. A note on the front door warned there were guns in the home and threatened to kill police, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s office.
At about 2:30 p.m, a camera-equipped robot entered the home and found Arthur Haskoor unresponsive, authorities say. He was airlifted at the time to Jersey Shore Medical Center.
Arthur Haskoor has been charged with murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose in connection with the death.
The couple had been married for 20 years with two male children, ages 17 and 18, according to the prosecutor’s office.
