Jarrone Perry is charged with second-degree aggravated manslaughter in the death of Kamealah Talmadge, 30, also of Neptune City. He is also facing a third-degree count of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Local police resopnded to a domestic violence call early on February 13. Monmouth prosecutors say Talmadge was found with an apparent stab wound in her upper chest area. She died at 5:45 the same morning at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

Local and County investigators arrested Perry not long afterward, and a county Superior Court judge at $1,500,000.

If convicted of the second-degree charge, Perry would face up to 30 years in a state prison, with no parole consideration until 85 percent of the time had been served under terms of the No Early Release Act. The weapons charge would subject him to as many as five years in prison.
