Jefferson, N.J. -- Authorities say an off-duty police lieutenant has been charged in the fatal shooting of his estranged wife and wounding of a man at a New Jersey home. Morris County prosecutors say Police Lt. John Formisano was arrested early Monday in Livingston, New Jersey, not long after the shooting occurred in Jefferson.
He was later charged with first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder, among other charges. Officers say they had been responding to calls of shots fired when they found 37-year-old Christine Formisano, of Jefferson, dead on the home's front porch. She ran to the next door neighbor's house, but it was late and people were sleeping, and she was, you know, 'Please, open the door,' and then she went to the next neighbor's house and [Formisano] followed her right down to the house and shot her on the front porch," neighbor Tom Verrone told CBS New York. A 40-year-old man was found inside the home with multiple gunshot wounds. Authorities say the gun believed to have been used in the shootings was found in Formisano's vehicle. The Newark Public Safety Department is deeply saddened by the family tragedy involving Newark Police Lt. John Formisano. Our foremost concern, of course, is for the couple's two children who have lost their mother and for the family of the victim.
"Lt. Formisano's colleagues in our police division were shocked by the news of the shooting and we recognize it this is a tragedy beyond comprehension for all involved." #domesticviolence

FEMINIST protest against gender violence descended into chaos as groups of protesters attacked two journalists.
A female news reporter was pelted with missiles and shoved by female protesters and a male anchor was knocked unconscious live on air from a horrific punch whilst reporting on the march in Mexico City. #juanmanuel was attacked live on air
Feminist protests are becoming increasingly popular in Mexico City following an increase in sexual violence and the alleged rape of two teenage girls by a gang of policemen.
Shocking footage shows Juan Manuel, a reporter from the ADN 40 network, nervously speaking to the camera as two women yell at him.
One woman appears to throw something in his direction.
Juan says: “[The protesters] are throwing things at people who are trying to help them through different ways, the media.” One woman, holding the hand of a young girl, shouts into the reporter’s microphone: “Yo si te creo,” which roughly translates to “I believe you.” UNACCEPTABLE VIOLENCE
Juan can be heard saying in Spanish: “The whole world believes women, the whole world believes [these] women.” The Sun Online understands he then tells his camera operator: “Right now they are very angry. “I’m going to move to a different location.” At this point, a man wearing a baseball cap and a white shirt sidles up beside the reporter, before landing a brutal punch to the side of his jaw.
None of the protesters try to stop the attacker as he calmly walks away and Juan’s colleagues rush to help him as he lays unconscious on the floor.
Further footage shared of the protest online appears to show a group of female activists attacking another news anchor, Melissa del Pozo de Milenio of the Milenio Televisión network.
Melissa screams as a group of women descend on her, shaky footage shows.
The anchor wrestles with a woman dressed in black, her face covered with a mask.
The camera then pans to show two women who appear to be stabbing a sign with longs knives.

A plea deal may be in the works for the Queens man charged with murder for allegedly leaving his ex to suffocate inside a suitcase he left on the side of the road in Greenwich, Conn., according to reports.
The negotiations were revealed in court filings in which prosecutors ask for more time as “preliminary” discussions on a deal for accused killer #javierdasilva, 24, continue, Greenwichtime.com reported.
The body of #valeriereyes, 24, of New Rochelle, was discovered Feb. 5.
Da Silva, an immigrant from Venezuela who overstayed his visa and worked as a barista, was arrested after he tried to use Reyes’ ATM card to withdraw $1,000 from her bank account. “I put her in the suitcase and ran,” he told The Post in a jailhouse interview. “I’m a bad person.” #domesticviolenceawareness
