Protest Put Off On Handling Of Autumn Pasquale Murder Case

WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) — A planned rally calling for two teen brothers accused of killing a 12-year-old southern New Jersey girl to be tried as adults did not happen Tuesday.

The organizer, Paul Spadafora, says a crowd did not show up partially because of confusion on where a sealed court hearing on the case would be held.

Spadafora is the godfather and great-uncle of 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale (pas-KWAHL’-ee). Her body was found in a recycling bin in Clayton last October, about 48 hours after she was reported missing.

The case has been acrimonious. The girl’s mother is suing her father over access to a memorial fund.

And Gloucester County prosecutors last week handed the case over to prosecutors in neighboring Camden County because of a court filing alleging mishandling of the case.
