Union City man charged in woman's slaying

UNION CITY - A 29-year-old man was charged this morning for allegedly murdering a woman during a domestic argument.

Police were called to a Union City apartment around 7 a.m. this morning after neighbors reported a disturbance. According to Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio, police say the victim, also 29, was believed to have been strangled.

Two young children were found at the scene, but it is unknown what their relation is to the suspect or victim. DeFazio declined to release the identities of those involved, saying it is too early in the investigation.
