North Plainfield Man Charged With Murder

Brooklyn woman found dead outside apartment building, the prosecutor's office said.

A 32-year-old North Plainfield man has been accused of killing a New York woman inside his Prospect Place apartment over the weekend, the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office said.

Felix Nehemias Graves Dardon, 32, has been charged with the murder of a 30-year-old Brooklyn woman, Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey D. Soriano, Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Detectives Stuart A. Buckman and North Plainfield Chief of Police William Parenti announced Tuesday.

According to the prosecutor, North Plainfield police responded to a 911 call Sunday at about 12:30 a.m., made after other tenants in the building where Darden rents a bedroom reported seeing Darden standing naked in the kitchen of an apartment, cleaning up blood on the floor.

Darden ran to the building's basement, where police found him wrapped in blood-soaked bedding, Soriano said.

Police found the body of the woman, whose name has not been released, in an alley on the east side of the building. The victim had suffered "severe and visible trauma to her body," Soriano said.

Detectives from the North Plainfield Police Department in conjunction with detectives from the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Squad and the Crime Scene Investigations and Forensics Units responded to conduct the investigation. The New Jersey Regional Medical Examiner’s Office also responded to the scene and subsequently removed the decedent from the scene.

Soriano said a post mortem examination was performed on Sunday, and the death was ruled a homicide by the Medical Examiner. 

Darden is currently being held in Somerset County Jail, pending a bail hearing, on a charge of first degree murder, Soriano said.

Soriano said the murder is still under investigation and anyone with information regarding the homicide should contact either the North Plainfield Police Department Detective Bureau at 908-769-2937, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Squad at 908-231-7100, or the Somerset County Crime Stoppers’ Tip Line at 1-888-577-TIPS(8477) or online at www.888577tips.org or www.scpo.net and click on either “Crime Stoppers” or “TIPS HOTLINE”. All calls are confidential.

I am ashamed to say North Plainfield. When we were younger we would get chased from sitting on a bench in front of the police sta. The police had the bench removed. I've seen a Spanish man walk right down Somerset St. and urinate in the open. Many times I've seen people not even being able to get into a store because these people are right there. No Plfd cops will drive by & not say anything. For that matter, the cops will walk by them to go into that store without saying anything. Why? Because they dont want to violate their civil rights. Please! Collect enough of the illegals and then deport them. Go to Grove St. and you'll find hundreds of "day laborers" = illegal. No one checks on the illegal housing in No. Plfd. Look at the statistics at boro hall and see how many homes were issued summonses for illegal housing. I can tell you not to waste your time, cause there isnt a single one. No wonder why taxes are insane in this town. I believe that we are also the only paid fire dept. in Somerset County. Paid fire dept. that the volunteer firemen do more work than the paid. Saw that for myself more than once. Also, I don't think they ever saved a foundation It is also very rare that they don't call in for another towns assistance. The police, fire dept., mayor, etc. ought to be ashamed of the job they have done & what North Plainfield has become. Get tough and stand up for what's right. Jan Brewer from Arizona has the right idea and guess what......SHE ISNT AFFRAID!

north plainfield needs a parking authority. a single family house should only have 2 parking permits. any other car parked more than 2 hours in the streets should be booted and ticketed or towed. north plainfield is over crowded with 3 familys living in a one family. they have 6 cars for a one family house?????? also parking meter should be runned like north bergen, nj. meter from 8am to 10pm. anyone parked inbetween those hours get a boot or ticket or tow. north plainfield can be fixed but NP needs a leader

parking authority would fix north plainfield. a permit will rquire a person to pay a few of like 40 a year. in order to a permit you would need a license, regerstration, and insurance. also, anyone with out a permit parked over 2hrs would get a boot, ticket or tow. like north bergen nj sysem. also, NP should have street cleaning with ticketing of cars parked blockingh the sweeper. this would fix and control NP over population and illegal people. also it would bring in money to the city of NP
