Salem County authorities say a woman and her two small children were found stabbed to death inside their Penns Grove home and that and a man identified as the woman’s husband took his own life in a wooded area nearby.
The Salem County Prosecutor’s Office says the victims suffered multiple stab wounds. Authorities on Thursday identified the woman as Ruth Reyes Severino and her children as Eurianny Severino and Eury Severino.
A neighbor says that Reyes obtained a restraining order against her husband, Eugenio Severino, after he threatened to kill her.
Eugenio Severino’s body was found in woods in Carneys Point on Wednesday morning.
