Accused Chatham priest-killer in a hurry the day of stabbing, fellow custodian says

| November 15, 2011

MORRISTOWN — A fellow church custodian who worked directly with Jose Feliciano testified today that on the day the parish priest was killed, Feliciano was acting "rushed" at the end of the work day and said he had to leave "quickly" because there was "something he had to take care of."

Feliciano left work at 4:55 p.m., five minutes before his shift was to end on Oct. 22, 2009, Maria Luz Cleves testified.

Feliciano apparently stabbed the Rev. Edward Hinds in the rectory at St. Patrick Church in Chatham within the next half-hour.

A 911 emergency call was made from the rectory at 5:26 p.m. and Hinds has been identified as the caller by two witnesses who have testified during Feliciano’s murder trial in Morristown. The call was cut off before Hinds could say what his emergency was. The priest’s lifeless body was found in the rectory the next morning.
