YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: River Edge police found the bodies of murder victims Arthur F. Noeldechen and Jung Yi (Lillian) Kim in an upstairs bedroom yesterday afternoon after getting a call requesting a welfare check, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said today, following the arrest of a New York woman in the killings.
Kim, who owns the home, was “involved in a dating relationship” with Noeldechen, Molinelli said.
He used to date Monica Mogg, whom the prosecutor said was stalking both victims for months after their relationship ended.
Sometime Tuesday night, Mogg drove to the Millbrook Road residence and entered the house through an unlocked rear door armed with a rifle and a knife, Molinelli said.
Once upstairs, she then shot and killed Noeldechan, the prosecutor said.
She then stabbed Kim to death during a struggle, he said.
Neither weapon had been recovered, he added.
Mogg, who lived in Newburgh, N.Y., was tracked down by police in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, and detained “initially due to her having been reported missing by family members,” Molinelli said.Addi
Detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Connecticut State Police subsequently interviewed her, after which she was charged the murders.
Mogg was ordered held on $2 million bail at the York Correctional Institute in Niantic, Ct., pending extradition to Bergen County, after being arraigned in Hartford Superior Court today.
Additional charges are expected once she gets here, Molinelli said.
