WINSLOW, New Jersey – A pizza deliveryman found the lifeless body of Filipina nurse Jennifer Bongco on the side of the road at Erial and Wiltons Landing Road in Winslow, N.J at around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say the 41-year-old nurse was stabbed to death.

By Friday night, US Marshals arrested Bongco’s live-in partner, 52-year-old Kevin Ambrose, in Atlantic City.

He was charged with murder.

Police say Ambrose allegedly stabbed Bongco several times before dumping her body and taking off in her car.

It is still not clear why the Pinay nurse was murdered.

But the victim’s sister posted a Facebook instant message from Ambrose calling Jennifer and her daughter “pigshit” on Friday.

Bongco’s sister also wrote on her social media wall that the arrest of Ambrose is just the beginning of their fight for justice for her sister Jennifer.

The investigation is still on going.
