LINDEN - A dinner fundraiser will be held Saturday to help the children of a woman who was found murdered in Long Branch.

Tyrita Julius' body was found in a Long Branch backyard earlier this week after police say she had been missing for months.

The fundraiser, which will be held in her hometown of Linden, was planned before her body was found.

Jennifer Sweeney and Andrew Harris have been charged with Julius’ murder. Officials say Julius was found buried in Harris' backyard.
