The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office has announced a mother from South Bound Brook has been indicted for homicide in the death of her 4-year-old son.
According to authorities, Elina Gutti, 38, was indicted for the Feb. 6 murder of her son, Aiden Singhania.
On Feb. 6, police received a 911 call from Gutti reporting she had unexplained injuries on her wrist. Upon responding, officers located Gutti with injuries to her left wrist which subsequently required minor medical treatment.
Officers also located the boy with severe lacerations to his throat. He was in a bed in the first-floor bedroom of the residence that he shared with the defendant.
Two bloody kitchen knives were found on the floor near the bed. Singhania was pronounced deceased at the scene. Gutti was transported to a hospital for medical evaluation.
Gutti remains lodged in the Somerset County Jail after being ordered detained pending trial by a Somerset County Superior Court judge.
The indictment charges Gutti with first-degree murder and two counts of third-degree possession of a weapon, a knife, for an unlawful purpose.
