Police have charged a 48-year-old man with the fatal stabbing of a South Amboy woman in her home and with the attempted slayings of children, authorities said today.

An autopsy found Mayra Morrissey, 38, died of multiple stab wounds to her back and chest following the Saturday attack, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said. The attack happened at 11:45 p.m. in the home in the 300 block of Henry Street, authorities said.

The prosecutor's office arrested Daniel Charron, charging him with the slaying and four counts of attempted murder, Kaplan said. Charron had been living with Morrissey, but their exact relationship is unclear, Kaplan said.

The children who were stabbed range in age from seven to 12, Kaplan said. The children were taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where one was listed in critical condition, according to the prosecutor's office. Authorities would not reveal the children's exact injuries.

Neighbors today described a harrowing scene in which they heard loud screams and then saw a girl running from the house. She was bleeding from the shoulder, they said, and escaped into a neighbor's home.

Some of the injured children were Morrissey's children from a prior relationship, and some were Charron's children from a prior relationship, Kaplan said.

Neighbors said police had been to Morrissey's Henry Street home earlier that day.

Ashley Burpo, 16, said Morrissey's teenage daughter was staying in her home, which is across the street from the slaying scene. Morrissey also had an 8-year-old daughter, Burpo said. She said Morrissey's teenage daughter ran to the younger girl's aid.

$2M bail for South Amboy man accused in killing

Monday December 03, 2007, 4:43 PM

A judge in New Brunswick today ordered a 48-year-old South Amboy man held on $2 million bail in the stabbing death of his girlfriend in their South Amboy home late Saturday night.

Public defender Richard "Red" Barker, left, stands with his client Daniel Charron, 48, as he enters a not guilty plea in Superior Court in New Brunswick today.Judge Joseph Rea set the high bail for Daniel Charron this afternoon after Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Julie Davidson told the judge Charron had a prior record. Charron was convicted of second-degree sexual assault in 1985 and was charged with endangering the welfare of a child in 1994, Davidson said.

Charron was arrested after police found his girlfriend, Myra Morrissey, 38, stabbed to death in their Henry Street home. Four children -- two of his from another relationship and two of Morrissey's -- were also stabbed and taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, authorities said. Neighbors described a horrific scene of children's screams and a girl running bleeding from the home.

Authorities charged Charron with murder and four counts of attempted murder of the children, whose ages range from 7 to 12. All four children were taken to the hospital; three have been released and one remained in critical condition today. Authorities have declined to describe the exact nature of their injuries.

Charron's attorney, Richard "Red" Barker, the Middlesex County First Deputy Assistant Public Defender, this afternoon entered a not guilty plea to the charges on behalf of his client.
