Man killed wife, put body in pool, got takeout

Prosecutors say a New Jersey man fatally beat his wife in their home, moved her body to their pool and then drove to a restaurant to buy takeout food.
 
Norman Long is charged with murder, concealing evidence and obstructing the administration of law in the death of his 47-year-old wife, Michelle. He was arrested Tuesday at their Woolwich Township home and was taken to a state psychiatric hospital for evaluation.
 
Michelle Long's body was found June 17. Gloucester County prosecutors say she died from blunt force trauma to her head and neck.
 
A motive for the attack has not been disclosed. The couple had been married for more than 15 years.
 
It was unclear Wednesday whether Norman Long had an attorney.
