Woman dead, husband hurt in NJ home

An elderly woman was found dead inside her northern New Jersey home in what authorities said may have been a double-suicide attempt with her husband, who was hospitalized in critical condition. The couple's son found them around noon Sunday inside their apartment in a senior citizens complex in Jersey City. Authorities would not identify the couple, but said both had been ailing.

Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said the couple appeared to have used helium gas and plastic bags and had left a note.

However, he would not discuss the note's contents and said his office was trying to confirm who wrote it.

"It could be an attempted suicide, but we are not prepared to classify the event that way," DeFazio told The Jersey Journal of Jersey City. "For now, it is a suspicious death pending further investigation."
