    A judge says he will rule next week on a prosecutors' request to order a DNA sample from the former husband of a popular New Jersey radio host who was shot to death five years ago.

    April Kauffman was killed in her Linwood home in May 2012. James Kauffman has denied any involvement in her death.

    State Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury said he will make his decision Tuesday but that it will be sealed and not available to the public.

    April Kauffman was a local businesswoman who hosted weekly talk shows and advocated for military veterans. She had received a governor's award for outstanding community service a few days before her death.

    Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner told The Press of Atlantic City this month James Kauffman is not a suspect.
