CLARK - A Clark woman was found dead in her home Saturday night, and her death is now being ruled as murder.

Vera Pecoraco, 73, was found dead in her home on Rolling Hill Way by one of her sons. Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow says a knife from her kitchen was found beside her body and her throat had been cut. Robbery is not believed to be the motive, as there was no sign of forced entry and nothing appeared to have been taken from her house.

Romankow says investigators believe the murder was not a random act and Pecoraco was targeted, possibly by someone she knew.
