WOODBRIDGE – A Bayonne woman has been officially charged with allegedly stabbing a fellow Bayonne resident in Woodbridge on July 18.
Amarlis Calderon, 32, was charged with murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose in the death of Pablo Caamano, 33.
During the investigation, it was determined that Calderon, who was reportedly walking on Randolph Avenue in Woodbridge, allegedly stabbed Caamano when he drove by and stopped to pick her up, according to a statement prepared by Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey.
Calderon allegedly got into the vehicle and the couple headed toward Interchange 12 on the New Jersey Turnpike, where they pulled to the side of the road.
Caamano was pronounced dead at the scene. It was incorrectly reported on July 18 that he was on Randolph Road when he was pronounced dead.
The couple knew each other, officials said.
Bail was set at $500,000 for Calderon, who is being held at the Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center.
Calderon initially was being held in lieu of $75,000 bail after she was charged with two counts of hindering police by lying to investigators and for disposing of a knife. She also had been charged with tampering with evidence for discarding the knife.
The New Jersey State Police initially were alerted at 3:20 a.m. and responded along with members of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information should call Sgt. Frank Robina of the New Jersey State Police at 609-947-6024 or Detective Craig Marchak of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-745-3254.
