| May 3, 2011

CHATHAM — The Rev. Edward Hinds’ computer was used to search for information on Jose Feliciano and his criminal record during the two months before the former church custodian allegedly killed the former Chatham priest, an investigator testified today.

Hinds’ computer, taken from the rectory at St. Patrick Church, listed three working accounts, all using versions of Hinds’ name, Sgt. Chris Then of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office testified.

Between Aug. 18 and Oct. 2 of 2009, the computer was used to search for information on Feliciano and also looked at criminal records in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, said Then, who works in the prosecutor’s computer crimes unit. Feliciano, now 66, of Easton, Pa., allegedly stabbed Hinds to death on Oct. 22, 2009.
