Rabbi Fred Neulander, the founder of one of New Jersey's largest synagogues, faces the death penalty for allegedly plotting his wife's 1994 murder. Driven by an affair with a local radio host, Neulander allegedly paid two men to bludgeon his wife Carol to death in their home. Neulander was originally charged with conspiracy to commit murder, but the charge was upgraded to capital murder in June 2000 when two men pleaded guilty to killing Carol and agreed to testify against Neulander. The rabbi claims his wife was killed during a robbery and denies involvement.
