    NJ - Karen Muglia, 46, beaten to death, Piscataway, 30 March 2008

    I'm really interested to see how this develops. It just irks me that authorities have to protect the 17-year-old's identity.

    Body found in Piscataway, teen charged with murder

    PISCATAWAY — A 46-year- old township woman's lifeless body was found in her Spencer Street home Monday and police have charged a 17-year-old in her murder, the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office said Monday night.

    Karen Muglia's body was found late Monday morning in the basement of her home by police, who were dispatched to Muglia's residence at the request of a relative after Muglia failed to show up for work.

    An investigation by township police and the Prosecutor's Office lead to a juvenile, identified only as "V.M.," the prosecutor's office said Monday night. The juvenile was charged with murder.

    The prosecutor's office cited state law with regard to juveniles in not releasing further details on "V.M.," who is being held in the county Juvenile Detention Center in North Brunswick pending a preliminary hearing in Family Court.

    Muglia's death is still under investigation. Investigators said they hope to determine the cause and time of Muglia's death following an autopsy.

    The Prosecutor's Office said it would wait on autopsy results and conclude its investigation before determining whether to try "V.M." as an adult.

    Anyone with information on Muglia's death is asked contact township Police Detective Sergeant David Powell at (732) 562-7650, or Investigator George Trillhaase of the Prosecutor's Office at (732) 745-3809.

    I hope he indeed is tried as an adult. I'm sick and tired reading about these little punks commiting atrocious crimes. He wanted to act big and bad, put him away for life.

    As it is children have few rights in this country.

    You weren't asking me, but I'll tell you why it irks me as well.....I think a 17 yr old who commits an adult crime should be treated as such. Children have plenty of rights, I learned this personally 10 years ago when I had an out of control daughter who kept falling through the cracks of our lousy system because "she had rights".
    Once they decide to try him as an adult we'll learn his identity.

    When a 14 year old child can go to the Doctor and get any medication that they want. I have no say in what they are prescribed or even know why they are prescribed. But I have to pay for it. I think they may have more rights than I do.

    Maybe the age should be lowered to 14 to constitute an adult?

    Exactly!!
    During those bad years I wanted the doctor to put her on BC and because my 13 year old said NO, it was no...because that's her right.

    She was addicted to drugs, because she was refusing treatment she couldn't be placed in a facility....because that's her right. When I asked doesn't my word mean anything the answer was no.

    I called the police once (well many times) because she hitting the walls with a bat creating big holes and when any of us came near her she'd threaten to bash us, the police got there they hauled me and the ex to the police station to question what 'we did to make her do that'....nothing was done to her period.
    It was a terrible time...

    Amraann, now don't start with all that touchy-feely-every-child-is-special crap. The "kid" is 17-years-old. Practically a legal adult. It's about RESPONSIBILITY. Whatever happened to that concept? Well, I suppose it's society's fault he killed that woman? Mommy and daddy didn't love him enough?

    C'mon, get real.

    According to this it's Karen Muglia's son who murdered her. That explains the "M".http://www.1010wins.com/Piscataway-T...Mother/1924782

    Count On Neighbors

    Neighbors let the kids name out of the bag. Karen, was the mother of two, but only one child lived in the home with her. His name is right in this article. http://www.thnt.com/apps/pbcs.dll/ar.../NEWS/80401017

    From October 2010:

    http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/201...lled_moth.html

    A 20-year-old Piscataway man was sentenced to 38 years in prison today for beating his mother to death with a crowbar after she took away his car keys...

    [Victor] Muglia, who was 17 at the time of the killing, pleaded guilty to murder on Aug. 6 after Peim in April refused to suppress his videotaped confession in which Muglia told investigators he beat the 46-year-old apartment office manager to death with a crowbar late March 30 or early March 31, 2008, and told them "what I always wanted to do is see someone die."

    Karen Muglia was in front of the television on the living room sofa when her son clubbed her over the head with a crowbar he got from their garage. After wrapping her body in plastic garbage bags, Muglia dragged it to the basement and hid it behind the furnace.
