Hackensack NJ Man Allegedly Beats Wife, Charged with Attempted Murder
Hackensack police officers were called to the home of 64-year-old Thomas Fabbricatore and 58-year-old Elizabeth Fabbricatore. Officers had received an anonymous call asking them to check on the home’s occupants.
When the officers arrived at the scene, Mr. Fabbricatore initially told them that there was no problem. When the officers insisted on speaking to his wife, he allowed them inside, where they found Ms. Fabbricatore suffering from a serious head injury.
After the incident, Ms. Fabbricatore remained in critical condition at Hackensack University Medical Center.
Mr. Fabbricatore has been charged with attempted murder, but authorities indicated that additional charges could be filed.
In New Jersey, murder and attempted murder are among the most serious offenses. If Mr. Fabbricatore is convicted of attempted murder, he could be sentenced to up to 20 years in NJ State Prison. Additionally, the No Early Release Act (NERA) may apply in this case, meaning that Mr. Fabbricatore would be required to serve a minimum of 85 percent of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
Mr. Fabbricatore is being held at the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $2 million bail.
