A Florida woman is accused of killing her sister at their mother’s home in New Jersey on Tuesday.
Her arrest came hours after officers from the Small Ferry Police Department responded to reports of a stabbing, and arrived to find the 21-year-old girl. Omelly Dominguez “Died with a gunshot wound to the head.”
The suspect fled when the police arrived at the scene, according to Little Ferry Police Chief Jim Waltersbut she was arrested by the New Jersey State Police a short time later in Cherry Hill, nearly 100 miles from the crime scene.
Police allege that Angielly was driving her boyfriend’s white Mustang at the time of her arrest and had five guns in the trunk.
That car had been stolen by her boyfriend the day before, along with “all the [his] weapons,” according to a complaint filed Wednesday by Bergen . County Prosecutor’s Office.
She then drove from Jacksonville to her family’s home in Little Ferry overnight, a distance of just over 900 miles.
It’s not clear what prompted the long trip, but the complaint says the suspect’s brother returned home on Tuesday and heard the two sisters talking in another room.
Law & Crime did not name his brother because he is a minor.
The brother later told investigators that the conversation between the two sisters became heated when the topic of conversation turned to money.
A few seconds later, the brother heard what sounded like a gunshot.
According to the complaint, he then entered the living room and discovered his sister had been shot in the head.
Angielly stared at him for a moment then fled the scene, according to the lawsuit.
At least two surveillance cameras backed up that version of events, capturing Angielly with her weapon as she fled the house and took off in her stolen car, the lawsuit said.
His brother immediately called 911, but by then, it was too late.
Angielly is being held at Bergen County Jail and will appear in court for the first time this afternoon.
She previously had no criminal record but committed 40 traffic violations between 2014 and 2019, according to court records.
Angielly faces 30 years in prison if convicted of first-degree murder.
She doesn’t have an attorney in the case yet.
