Arthur Haskoor, the man accused of stabbing his wife to death at their home in the New Egypt section of Plumsted, remains in critical condition Wednesday after overdosing on drugs, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office said Wednesday Haskoor remained in critical condition with serious, self-inflicted injuries, but did not specify the nature of those injuries. He was under guard at Capital Health Hospital in Trenton.

Also Wednesday, Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato and Plumsted Township Police Chief Matthew Petrecca announced Haskoor, 56, had been charged with murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose in connection with the death

Judge Wendel E. Daniels set bail at $1 million dollars with no 10 percent option.

It's still unclear why Arthur Haskoor allegedly attacked his wife, an incident that set off an hours-long standoff with police Tuesday.

School officials received information about a domestic dispute at 120 Evergreen Road in the New Egypt section of Plumsted at about 10 a.m, officials have said said. Both New Egypt High School and Middle School are across the street from the home. School officials immediately called 911.

Arriving officers found a deceased woman — later identified as 48-year-old 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 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.

The couple had been married for 20 years with two male children, ages 17 and 18, according to the prosecutor's office.

Authorities are continuing to gather evidence, the office said. They're asking anyone with information on the case to contact Detective Uricks at 609-758-3738 or Detective Murphy at 732-929-2027.
