NORTH BERGEN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a New Jersey man has been charged with fatally stabbing his grandmother.

Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said Thursday that 26-year-old Jaydeep Patel was charged with murder in the death of 73-year-old Ramila Patel.

Ramila Patel was found with multiple stab wounds to her torso in a home in North Bergen early Wednesday morning.

A spokesman for Suarez says Jaydeep Patel doesn’t yet have an attorney listed who could comment on the charges. He was also charged with weapons possession.

Patel has yet to make his initial court appearance and spokesman Gene Rubino declined to comment on a possible motive.
