A suspended New Jersey cop was indicted Tuesday in the shooting death of his ex-wife, NJ.com reports.
The suspended Neptune Township police sergeant, who was accused of shooting his ex-wife to death in broad daylight, faces life without parole.
Philip Seidle, 51, was reportedly charged with one count each of murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and endangering the welfare of a child.
Authorities have said Seidle, a 22-year veteran of the Neptune Township Police Department, had the couple's youngest child in the front seat of the car with him when he chased down Tamara Seidle on the streets of Asbury Park on June 16, forced her to crash into a parked car and then shot her to death while she was trapped in her Volkswagen Jetta.
According to witnesses, Seidle shot two rounds from his duty weapon at point-blank range at his former wife before pointing the gun at himself and threatening to kill himself. The couple's 7-year-old daughter ran from his vehicle to safety.
Seidle and his ex-wife have nine children together.
