UPDATE, March 31: Bergen County prosecutors announced that Nile Diakos, of Leonia, has been charged in Arnone's murder, instead. Daniels has been released from custody.

LEONIA — A woman stabbed to death had a documented history of domestic violence involving the Lodi man accused of her killing, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office and the victim’s father.

Leonia police officers responded to a 911 call on Saturday around 10 a.m. about a stabbing at an apartment at 147 Grand Avenue — they found 35-year-old Alicia A. Arnone, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Andre Daniels, whose records also show he goes by "Andrae," was arrested and charged with murder, following an investigation by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and the Leonia Police Department.

A final restraining order had been issued against Daniels last year, which had forbidden him from any contact with Arnone, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Arnone was found unresponsive on Saturday by her boyfriend, who called police, as reported in the affidavit.

“After a three-year battle with the state of New Jersey regarding domestic violence having shown evidence after evidence after evidence of domestic abuse with arrest warrants issued and never carried out my sweet angel was found stabbed to death,” Peter Arnone Junior said of his daughter, on social media as shared to Facebook by family friend, Eric Hvisc.

The 39-year-old Daniels, who is single and unemployed, also faces counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.

He had already faced contempt charges, stemming from several incidents, according to Bergen County jail records.

As of Sunday, Daniels was being held at Bergen County Jail, pending a court hearing.

Best coffee shops & cafes near NJ beaches

When it comes to food, New Jersey is known for many things such as pizza and pork roll. Don't count us out when it comes to coffee.

With all the hustle and bustle involved in the average New Jersey resident's day, coffee is essential. It doesn't matter whether you're living in the cities of North Jersey or the vacation spots at the shore.

In fact, as the former owner of two Jersey shore coffee houses, Coffee Dot Comedy in Sea Isle City and the Daily Grind in Ocean Grove, I know firsthand how much people at the Jersey shore love their coffee.

With respect to that, I asked my social media following where the best coffee houses at the Jersey Shore were, especially since my two places no longer exist.

Below is what they came up with. (And see this other article for their coffee shop and cafe recommendations for Central Jersey.)
