PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say the husband of a woman found dead in a northern New Jersey restaurant has been charged with her murder.

Forty-two-year-old Jiu Jian Zheng of Parsippany also faces two weapons counts in the death of Yun Fei Lin, whose body was found late Friday night at the Kazumi Sushi restaurant in Parsippany. His bail was set Saturday at $1 million cash, and it was not known if he had retained a lawyer.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi declined to comment Saturday on a possible motive for the slaying. He says officers responding to a 911 call from the restaurant found the body and arrested Zheng there a short time later.

An autopsy determined that she suffered multiple stab wounds and bled to death.
