Children slain, mother abducted

Two children were murdered, while their mother was reported abducted by a tenant of the home they shared.

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. - An abduction at the Jersey shore ended with a woman safe, her children dead and a suspect in custody Friday following a two-county search.

The woman was bound with rope and allegedly taken by a tenant from the Stafford Township home that she shared with her two children Thursday night, executive assistant Ocean County prosecutor Bob Gasser said.

The woman's ex-husband called police around 8:45 p.m. to say he found his sons, ages 7 and 14, stabbed to death in the home.

Meanwhile, Gasser said the suspect had driven the woman up the Garden State Parkway and pulled in for gas at the Monmouth Rest Stop, here.

The woman managed to break free and ran to an attendant for help while the suspect fled on foot into the woods, Gasser said.
