ENGLEWOOD - Family and friends gathered today to pay final respects to a mother and daughter, who were allegedly killed by the mom’s boyfriend.
Funeral services were held today at the Community Baptist Church in Englewood.
Bergen County prosecutors say 34-year-old Michael Brady, of Teaneck, stabbed 41-year-old Tam Marie "Tammy" Pitts-Gaddy last week during an argument in her apartment in Englewood. They say he then used a plastic bag to smother her 5-year-old daughter, Natasia Gaddy, because she had witnessed her mother's slaying.
Brady has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, hindering apprehension and weapons offenses. Prosecutors say Brady and Pitts-Gaddy had dated for the last three years and lived together at times during their relationship.
