    NJ - Julia Miraglia, 87, & Leigh Martinez, 31, found decapitated, 8 June 2004

    OCEAN TOWNSHIP, New Jersey -- Authorities said a man decapitated and cut off the hands and feet of his grandmother and former girlfriend Tuesday.

    Rosario Miraglia, 31, called police after emerging from his grandmother's two-story home covered in blood, said county prosecutor John Kaye.

    When police entered the home they discovered the bodies of 87-year-old Julia Miraglia and 31-year-old Leigh L. Martinez.

    Officials said Martinez was the mother of Miraglia's child and lived with the older woman.

    A carving knife and a meat cleaver were found on the first floor next to the grandmother's body.

    "It's one of the more disturbing (crime) scenes I've seen," said police detective Lt. Antonio Amodio.

    Is it copycat?

    I noticed all the cases lately, too. Are people copycatting the other crimes that they hear about or what?

    An Ocean Township man convicted of killing and dismembering his grandmother and former girlfriend was sentenced to two life sentences this morning after telling a Superior Court judge that he killed the women's clones.
