Authorities are accusing the daughter of a deceased municipal judge in northern New Jersey of beating her boyfriend to death on Valentine's Day.
The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office says 59-year-old Andrea Consales is charged with first-degree murder and weapons offenses.
She's held on $1.5 million bail and faces a court appearance on Monday.
Police came to her home on Valentine's Day and found her 44-year-old boyfriend, Giovanni Iuliano, on the floor with significant blunt force injuries.
He died at a hospital.
The Record newspaper reports Consales' father, Leon, served as a municipal judge in five north Jersey towns in the 1980s and 1990s.
He died in 2006
