MONROE -

An Elizabeth woman is searching for justice as she mourns the death of her husband killed in a hit-and-run in Monroe.

Leslie Cedillo says her husband was struck while on his way to work in Monroe Township two weeks ago.

A vigil was held Saturday night at the intersection of Applegarth Road and Forsgate Drive, where Jose Cedillo was last seen alive.

"I would hope that this person, whoever they are, would just turn themselves in," says Cedillo. "It's inconceivable to me how they can sleep at night."              

Crime Stoppers of Middlesex County is offering a reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the driver.
