BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man accused of killing his estranged wife and evading police for two weeks will remain jailed until his trial starts.

A judge made the ruling Tuesday during a detention hearing held for Jeremiah Monell. The hearing was mandated as per New Jersey’s newly enacted bail reform laws.

The 32-year-old Cedarville man is charged with murder, weapons offenses and violating a restraining order in the death of 35-year-old Tara O’Shea, who was killed at her Commercial Township home on Dec. 18. Cumberland County prosecutors have said the couple’s 12-year-old son witnessed the stabbing.

Authorities have said Monell fled after the killing. An intensive air and ground search ensued and he was finally captured Jan. 2 in a wooded area in Folsom.
