TEANECK - The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office says it is investigating the murder of a 23-year-old Teaneck woman.

Police were seen arriving at the home of the woman after family members brought Shaday Bentacourt from her home on East Forest Avenue to Englewood Hospital.

Police have not released any information regarding how Bentacourt was killed.

Investigators said they were looking at Bentacourt's estranged husband or partner, 24-year-old Pedro Guittierez, of New Milford.

Sources tell News 12 New Jersey that Guittierez was picked up by police at Newark Airport, possibly on his way to Colombia.
