Kauffman was arrested June 13 at his Egg Harbor Township office. Authorities have said he brandished a handgun as agents executed search warrants at his office and home, but a hostage negotiator persuaded him to surrender.
The raids weren’t linked to the slaying of April Kauffman, who was found dead inside her bedroom at their Linwood home on May 10, 2012. No one has ever been charged.
