Prosecutors: Woman fatally beat wife with wine chiller



BRICK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a woman found dead in her southern New Jersey apartment last weekend was fatally beaten by her wife with a wine chiller. Ocean County prosecutors say 48-year-old Mayra Gavilanez-Alectus, of Brick, has been charged with murder and two weapons offenses in the slaying of 32-year-old Rebecca Gavilanez-Alectus. She remained at large Wednesday. Brick police found Rebecca Gavilanez-Alectus’ body in a bedroom when they responded Sunday to reports of an unresponsive person. An autopsy determined she was killed with a “cylindrical container used for the purpose of chilling wine,” and her death was ruled a homicide. Authorities have not said what prompted the attack.
