MAYS LANDING, N. J. – A judge weighs whether to get a DNA sample from the former husband of a popular radio host who was killed five years ago.
Atlantic County prosecutor Damon Tyner appeared in court Friday to seek approval to the sample of Dr. James Kauffman.
Kauffman’s deceased wife, April Kauffman, was discovered shot to death in her Linwood home in May 2012.
She was a businesswoman, who hosted the weekly talk show and advocates for military veterans. She had received a governor’s award for outstanding service to the community a few days before her death.
Kauffman’s daughter has claimed James Kauffman, her stepfather, murdered her mother. James Kauffman has been denied.
Tyner told The Press of Atlantic City this month that James Kauffman is not a suspect.
