MONTVILLE - In what is Montville's first homicide in perhaps 15 years, a man and woman were stabbed to death at their residence.
Just before 5 a.m. Monday, Montville and State Police received a 911 call about a stabbing at a Morgan St. address. When they arrived, they said the adult male, who is the suspect, was at the residence and was taken into custody.
"Obviously something like this is not a snapshot of this community," said Kyle Looney, a neighbor. "It really is quiet around here. Something like this is just so so far out of what’s normal."
Looney, 24, has grown up in the home directly across the street from the residence and woods being combed by CSP Eastern District Major Crimes.
"I live on that street and when I was coming to work like it was kind of blocked off," said Maria Carrion.
Living in the same neighborhood where something like this happens is startling, she says.
"It’s kind a like you really can’t trust people nowadays," she said.
Police say charges have not yet been filed and that the autopsies are expected to be completed on Tuesday.
Police refused to say who made the 911 call or whether any weapons were recovered.
