Murder Trial Begins for Man Charged in New Jersey Radio Host’s Murder

Atlantic County prosecutors claim Augello and the woman’s husband, Dr. James Kauffman, wanted to stop her from exposing a drug ring allegedly run by the doctor and the Pagans Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

A former motorcycle gang leader is testifying in the murder trial of a man charged in the killing of a New Jersey radio show host in an alleged plot to prevent her from exposing a drug ring.

Andrew Glick was the first witness called Monday in the trial of Ferdinand Augello. Augello has pleaded not guilty in the 2012 shooting of April Kauffman at her Linwood home.

Glick testified for the prosecution, discussing how he became involved in the ring with Augello. Glick has been cooperating with authorities since he was arrested in November on weapons and drugs charges.

Atlantic County prosecutors claim Augello and the woman’s husband, Dr. James Kauffman, wanted to stop her from exposing a drug ring allegedly run by the doctor and the Pagans Outlaw Motorcycle Gang. Kauffman was found dead in his cell in January in an apparent suicide.
