A New Jersey man accused of killing his estranged wife and evading police for two weeks has been caught following a massive manhunt.

State police say 32-year-old Cedarville resident Jeremiah Monell was captured Monday. He was found in a wooded area in Folsom.

Monell is accused of killing 35-year-old Tara O’Shea at her home in Commercial Township on Dec. 18. O’Shea’s family and friends say Monell slit her throat in front of their 12-year-old son.

The intensive air and ground search for Monell was centered on a wooded area in Lawrence Township where authorities had found his truck.

State police had offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to Monell’s arrest.

Monell is in custody and can’t be reached for comment.
