Domestic violence has afflicted our community, once again, in its most ultimate form with the suspected murder of Annette Torres by her partner, Mark Morris, who then took his own life, in Bergenfield last Saturday. Their 11-year-old son found them dead the next morning in their home. The last 5 months have been particularly horrific in Bergen County. In October 2015, Arthur Lomando reportedly stabbed to death his ex-girlfriend, Suzanne Bardzell. Michael Stasko of Edgewater apparently shot his wife, Melissa, their 8-year-old daughter, Mellie, and himself; they were found dead, on Christmas Day. On January 31, 2016, Luisa Pleger of North Arlington was killed. Her husband, Eric Pleger, was charged with her murder.
