Church custodian arrested in priest’s slaying


The Rev. Ed Hinds was found dead Friday in rectory kitchen of St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Chatham, N.J. Saturday authorities arrested and charged the church janitor, Jose Feliciano, 64, with stabbing the priest 32 times. From the AP:

The announcement of Feliciano’s arrest was met with shock and tears at Saturday evening Mass, a double blow to the church community where the priest had served for six years and the janitor had worked for 17.

The pair got into an argument on Thursday evening, and it was during the altercation that Feliciano grabbed a knife and stabbed the 61-year-old Hinds multiple times, Bianchi said.

Sounds like Feliciano’s job was in jeopardy. Read the rest here.
