Husband charged after wife’s beaten body found in their home
BRIGANTINE — A man was charged with murder after his wife's beaten body was found in their southern New Jersey home.
Brigantine police found Rachel Declementi, 30, when they responded to a 911 call around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office. She had numerous injuries to her body, but further details were not disclosed and a cause of death has not yet been determined.
Robert Declementi, 36, was charged with murder and remains in the county jail, pending a detention hearing that will likely be held this week. It wasn't known Monday if he has retained an attorney.
A motive for the slaying remains under investigation.
