The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office says a woman has been charged in the deaths of both her father and his girlfriend.
Authorities say Sherry Lee Heffernan, 55, of Landenberg, Pennsylvania, has been charged with two counts of murder, among other charges.
The incident happened Sunday around 4 p.m.
Police responded to a residence on North Seventh Street to conduct a welfare check upon the residents. 
Officers located the bodies of John Enders, 87, of Surf City, and Francoise Pitoy, 75, of Manchester. Both suffered multiple stab wounds. 
The Ocean County Medical Examiner determined the cause of Enders’ death to be multiple stab wounds with severance of the right carotid artery and blunt force trauma. The manner of death was ruled to be a homicide.
A post-mortem examination of Pitoy was scheduled for today.
An investigation revealed the victims were dating and that Enders was the primary owner of the residence. 
Heffernan was taken into custody at the Ocean County Jail pending a detention hearing.
