HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey jail official has denied allegations that a former New York City police officer accused of throwing himself in front of a train after hacking his ex-girlfriend to death has been mistreated.

Bergen County Jail Warden Christopher Davies tells The Record newspaper (https://bit.ly/20HvitZ ) that Arthur Lomando has access to a wheelchair, a handicap-accessible shower and toilet facilities. He says privacy issues prevent him from commenting on whether Lomando is receiving medication.

Lomando pleaded not guilty last month to killing Suzanne Bardzell in October 2014. The Centereach, New York man lost both feet after being hit by a train hours after her death.

His attorneys have said Lomando hasn’t received proper medical care, but Davies says a judge ruled otherwise.

Lomando’s attorneys didn’t return calls for comment.
