In the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 24, a Toms River woman fatally stabbed her ex-boyfriend, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

Samantha Massimino, 33, has been arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter.

Toms River police responded to the call around 4 am. Officers arrived to find Reinaldo Feliciano Jr. with a stab wound to the leg. Feliciano was rushed to Community Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries.

After an investigation conducted by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Toms River Township Police Detective Bureau and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, it was revealed that the pair had previously dated and became involved in a physical altercation at the residence. During the argument, Massimino retrieved a knife and stabbed Feliciano in the leg.
