EDISON - Sen. Barbara Buono and Sen. Linda Greenstein were on hand today to discuss a new bill aimed at thwarting domestic violence.
Buono and Greenstein were joined by Ashlee Newman, whose cousin was stabbed to death last December by her estranged husband.
Under the newly proposed bill, people convicted of domestic abuse would be tracked using GPS. The bill would also make it a crime for abusers to prevent their victims from using email or cell phones to seek help.
None of the proposed bills have come up for a vote yet in Trenton.
Police say Anthony Trapp, 39, killed his estranged wife, 37-year-old Heather Trapp, at their home in Old Bridge Township before taking his two young daughters to the Bear Mountain Bridge Motel and committing suicide.
