A Merchantville, N.J. woman is dead and her daughter injured after the daughter’s ex-boyfriend entered their home Wednesday night and stabbed both of them, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

Gilbert Villanueva, 26, allegedly stabbed 22-year-old Kristen Durocher and her 50-year-old mother Suzanne Durocher. Suzanne died of her injuries while Kristen is in stable condition at Cooper University Hospital.

Villanueva was in the Durocher’s home Wednesday night on Prospect Street. Officials said Suzanne tried to get Villanueva to leave. He then stabbed both women. He has been charged with felony murder, attempted murder, purposeful and knowing murder and second degree burglary.

Villanueva was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden Wednesday night for knife wounds sustained to his hands. He will be arraigned today in Camden County Superior Court.

According to reports, Suzanne Durocher was the associate chief nursing officer of operations at Temple University Hospital.
