UPDATE: A 59-year-old Hackensack woman who police said was beaten into a coma by her husband died and charges against him were upgraded to murder to murder.
Thomas Fabbricatore, who was also arrested in March for beating his wife, remained held on $2 million bail today.
His first court appearance is scheduled for this Friday.
Officers responding to an emergency call last Tuesday found 58-year-old Beth Fabbricatore unconscious in their Marvin Avenue home despite her husband’s insistence that nothing had happened, Detective Lt. John Heinemann told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The officers pressed to see her and found the unconscious woman bleeding from the head, he said.
She was rushed to Hackensack University Medical Center.
CLIFFVIEW PILOT broke the story about the assault of Mrs. Fabbricatore, who worked for North Jersey Media Group, which publishes the Bergen Record newspaper.
