A 30-year old woman was found dead in her Folsom home today, prompting an investigation by New Jersey State Police.

NBC40.com reports a call was placed to 9-1-1 approximately 8 a.m. Friday about a suspicious man in the area of Lenape Terrace.  Troopers arrived to find Merry Abernathy dead inside her home.

State Police report there were signs of trauma on the victim’s body consistent with a homicide, but no known cause of death will be confirmed until an autopsy is complete.

NJSP believe they have the man responsible for the killing arresting 43-year-old Darrin Plumlee and charging him with Abernathy’s murder earlier today. Authorities think believe Plumlee and Abernathy romantically involved.
