WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP - (AP) - Funeral services will be held Monday for a northern New Jersey woman who authorities say was fatally stabbed by her teenage brother.
Family members tell The Record that Teia Gallo's funeral will be held at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Hillsdale.
The 20-year-old died Thursday night after her 17-year-old brother, Travis, allegedly stabbed her multiple times with a kitchen knife. Authorities say the slaying occurred as they argued in their family's home in Washington Township, an affluent suburb just northwest of upper Manhattan.
Travis Gallo appeared Friday at a closed hearing in juvenile court in Hackensack and had a not guilty plea entered by a public defender. The Bergen County Prosecutor's office will decide within the next month whether to have him tried as an adult.
