In Chatham priest killing, jury shown knife found near suspect’s home

| October 29, 2011

CHATHAM BOROUGH — Two days after a Chatham priest was stabbed to death, a small brown steak knife was found across the street from the home of the church custodian accused of killing him, a Morris County Sheriff’s investigator testified today.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Puzio, a former detective, was on the witness stand most of the day, identifying numerous pieces of evidence he collected during the autopsy of the Rev. Edward Hinds and during a search of the home and neighborhood of former custodian Jose Feliciano.

Feliciano, now 66, of Easton, Pa., is on trial in Superior Court in Morristown on a murder charge in the Oct. 22, 2009 death of Hinds, the former pastor at St. Patrick Church. Feliciano is accused of stabbing Hinds 32 times in the church rectory.
