HACKENSACK-- A 40-year-old Bergenfield man has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend, a club manager from Edgewater who disappeared late last month, the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement Friday.
Raphael Lolos has also been charged with desecration of human remains, hindering apprehension, stalking and credit card fraud following the murder of Jenny Londono, 31.
On June 27, Londono's partial remains were found in Brooklyn. Londono, who was reportedly last seen two days earlier in Union City, was identified through a distinctive Sanskrit-language tattoo below her right hip.
The New York Police Department contacted Bergen County authorities after learning Londono was last seen in New Jersey and carried out a joint investigation.
Authorities say Lolos killed and dismembered Londono in New Jersey and threw her remains in the Hudson River. Lolos allegedly used Londono's credit cards up until his arrest Thursday in Linden.
Following his arrest, Lolos suffered what authorities described as a "medical episode." He was hospitalized at Hackensack University Medical Center.It was in the quiet of the next morning that Ms. Dumala, 32, decided that would be the day she would step inside the worship room. What had been unbearable just the previous day seemed surmountable the following day, if only because it was the next painful step.
