Woman with restraining order slain

Posted: April 24, 2013

A woman was stabbed to death Tuesday in Camden apparently by the former boyfriend against whom she had obtained a restraining order a week ago, officials said.

The suspected assailant, identified as Jose Quinones, 36, of the 600 block of North 9th Street, also suffered stab wounds, but survived and was undergoing surgery Tuesday afternoon at Cooper University Hospital, authorities said.

The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said Madaline Morales, 27, was found stabbed at a home on the 500 block of North 9th Street, in North Camden, about 9:30 a.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Morales had obtained a temporary restraining order against Quinones on April 15, the prosecutor’s office said. Quinones was found at the same location as Morales.

No charges have been filed yet.

Initial reports had described the pair as husband and wife.
