Mother, teens killed in murder-suicide in Linden to be laid to rest

A mother and her two teens killed in a murder-suicide in Linden will be memorialized on Wednesday.
Justyna Nieroda, 41, and her children Natalie Nieroda, 13 and Sebastian Nieroda, 14, will also be laid to rest in a Mass on Friday morning.
Authorities say that they were shot and killed by Krzysztof Nieroda, Justyna’s husband and the children’s father. He then took his own life. Their bodies were found Sunday morning.
“There simply are no words to describe the trauma, heartbreak and sorrow that we are all experiencing,” Mayor Derek Armstead previously wrote in a statement.
A GoFundMe page has raised more than $85,000 to cover funeral costs.
