Burlington County Prosecutor Robert Bernardi announced Sunday that 76-year-old Fredricka Rosa of Pemberton Township was being held on $250,000 bail in the death of 79-year-old Valpa Rosa Sr.
Police found the body Saturday after being called to the home by a family member, but Bernardi said Rosa apparently died Thursday night. Bernardi said Rosa was shot in the head and neck with a .357 magnum handgun, which was recovered at the residence.
A possible motive for the shooting wasn't disclosed.
Bernardi said police were called to the home by one the couple's children, who lives out of state but went there after receiving a call from Fredricka Rosa.
