Man who fled to Washington gets 50 years for stabbing ex-wife 84 times

The Associated Press

MORRISTOWN, N.J.  — A Morris County man convicted of fatally stabbing his ex-wife and covering her face with a pig mask has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

A jury found Anthony Novellino guilty in July of the murder of 62-year-old Judith Novellino, a high school English teacher. The couple had recently divorced.

Prosecutors said Anthony Novellino stabbed his wife 84 times in their Denville home on June 19, 2010 then covered her face with the mask. The couple’s adult daughter found the body when she arrived at the home to help her mother move her belongings to an apartment she had rented in Parsippany.

Anthony Novellino was convicted of murder, hindering, evidence tampering and two weapons charges. He was captured several days after the killing in Washington state.
