SHOCK: Off-duty Neptune Sgt. Phillip Seidle was charged with murder after fatally shooting his ex-wife on a local street, in front of their 7-year-old daughter and other witnesses, the Asbury Park Press reports.
Seidle was also charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of his young daughter. He and his ex-wife, Tamara Seidle, who divorced on May 27, have nine kids, ranging in age from seven to 24.
The fatal shooting followed a violent encounter that began when Seidle — with his young daughter in the passenger seat of his silver Honda Pilot — chased his wife as she was driving through the streets of Asbury Park, LeMieux said.
As Tamara Seidle was trying to flee, her vehicle crashed into a parked car on Sewall Avenue. Phillip Seidle’s car then crashed into hers, and he got out of the car, pulled out his handgun, and approached her car, immediately firing into the driver’s side several times.
