Cherry Hill, NJ Man Now Facing Murder Charge After Stabbing Victim Dies
The victim of a stabbing at the hands of a Cherry Hill man has died eight months after the attack, and charges against the suspect have been upgraded to first-degree murder.
The amedment of charges stems from a July 2019 incident in Audubon Park, Camden County when 63-year-old Nancy Kenny was reportedly stabbed and slashed with a sharp object. She was able to identify her attacker as 72-year-old Philip Puche of Cherry Hill.
On March 15th, Kenny died as a result of complications from her injuries, according to Camden County Prosecutor's Office.
