South Jersey family of 3 dead in murder-suicide

- A Burlington County man shot his wife and son to death before killing himself inside their home.

The county prosecutor and Burlington Township authorities announced officers got to the family’s home on Sunflower Circle at about 10:15pm Monday, “after a relative of the family requested a wellness check at that address.”

Then, “The investigation found Ruben Johnson Jr., 50, fatally shot his wife, Mishanda, 48, and their 10-year-old son before turning the gun on himself.”

Authorities say nobody else was involved and they’re still looking for a motive.
