A Jersey City woman was recently stabbed to death inside an apartment building and her teenage son was hospitalized after coming to his mother’s defense. Sources indicated that a man attacked and stabbed the woman, believed to be his wife, and that the woman’s 15-year-old son tried to help her during the assault. The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that the woman was fatally stabbed. At the time, it was unclear what type of injuries the boy sustained. This death marks the fifth domestic violence-related homicide in Hudson County during 2017 and is a reminder of why the New Jersey courts take domestic violence cases so seriously.

When it comes to domestic violence in New Jersey, the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act (PDVA) sets forth 19 criminal actions that are considered domestic violence and that permit the victim to obtain a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the perpetrator. According to N.J.S.A. 2C:25-19 (1) through (19), those acts that constitute domestic violence in New Jersey are homicide, assault, terroristic threats, kidnapping, criminal restraint, false imprisonment, sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, lewdness, criminal mischief, burglary, criminal trespass, harassment, cyber-harassment, stalking, criminal coercion, robbery, contempt of a domestic violence order, and any other crime involving risk of death or serious bodily injury. If any one of these acts is perpetrated, then the victim is able to obtain a temporary restraining order as long as the aggressor shared a domestic relationship with the victim.
