Denville woman found stabbed to death

Police are searching for the person who killed a 62-year-old woman in Denville last night.

Police say a family member found Judith Novellino stabbed to death inside her home yesterday around 7 p.m.

Novellino was found with more than 80 stab wounds on her body, according to investigators.

Neighbors say Novellino was a nice lady and that they can't believe this happened to her.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi says based on what they know, it doesn't appear to be a robbery turned murder. Bianchi says investigators believe Novellino was specifically targeted.
