TRENTON — A manhunt is under way for a South Jersey man police said murdered his wife.
State Police said Jeremiah Monell, 32, of Cedarville, killed his estranged wife, Tara O'Shea-Watson, 35 in her Commercial Township home on Monday and he is now on the run.
Monell is described as a white male standing 5 feet and 9 inches tall, weighing approximately 140 pounds. He was last seen driving a 1994 blue Chevrolet S10 pickup with New Jersey license plate X91GJV.
State Police said that on Monday at 8:05 a.m., troopers responded to a private residence on Raymond Drive for the report of a deceased woman — O'Shea-Watson. Upon arrival, troopers discovered her unconscious and unresponsive, police said.
Police didn't say how they determined Monell was the killer.
Monell has been charged with murder and related weapons possession with bail set at $1 million.
A GoFundMe page has been created to pay for O'Shea-Watson's funeral and to care for her two children. The page shows her with two children, and says most of her family lives in Tennessee.
