NJ Prison Guard Shoots Girlfriend, Self: Pros.

The Essex County Prosecutor's Office says a New Jersey corrections officer killed his girlfriend and then himself.

Police found the bodies of 38-year-old Christopher Minichini and 37-year-old Christina Prestianni in their home in Nutley on Thursday.

Authorities say the preliminary investigation indicates Minichini shot Prestianni and then turned the gun on himself.

Minichini had been a state prison guard for seven years.
