NJ woman found killed in bed, man took her Jeep and cash

MOUNT LAUREL — When a 38-year-old woman was found beaten to death in her own bed, a male acquaintance was arrested after driving her Jeep and withdrawing cash from the woman’s account at two ATMs, Burlington County Attorney Scott said Coffina, known on Thursday .

Melissa Malcolm was found dead at her home on Mount Laurel Road around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday by Mount Laurel Police officers who were conducting a health check after she failed to show up for work.

Andrew Kramer, 31, of Mantua, was taken into custody as a person of interest, Coffin said. As of Thursday afternoon, no manslaughter charges had been brought against him.

Kramer was seen on surveillance video using Malcolm’s debit card to withdraw money from ATMs at two different convenience stores hours before the woman’s body was found – around 2:15am in the Marlton area of ​​Evesham and 4am in Brooklawn, according to the prosecutor’s office.

He was also driving Malcolm’s silver 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee at the time of those withdrawals, Coffina said.

Kramer was next seen in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he approached a man at gunpoint and told him he needed a ride.

The man told Kramer he could stay in his garage — but when Kramer entered the garage, the man locked him in and called the police.

Officers arrived and took Kramer into custody.

The Philadelphia police were preparing charges against Kramer on gun charges and terrorist threats, while Coffina’s office was preparing charges against him for credit card and automobile theft.

Police have asked the public for help to locate Malcolm’s 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which has a New Jersey license plate – M73 HKY.

Anyone who sees the vehicle has been asked to call the Mount Laurel Police Department at 856-234-1414, ext. 1524 or email [email protected]

According to property records, Malcolm lived in a ranch-style single-family home.
