The killing of Luz Hernandez was being investigated as a domestic violence case, the Hudson County prosecutor said. A second Jersey City man was still a fugitive in connection with the victim's burial.
Days after the discovery of the 33-year-old victim in a shallow grave in Kearny, the prosecutor announced an arrest was made in connection with the homicide investigation, while a second man was being sought.
Luz Hernandez, 33, of Jersey City, was reported missing on Monday, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said. Separately, a man was charged with murder in a 24-year-old woman's stabbing death in West New York.
