Neptune City, NJ — Neptune Township police Sgt. Phil Seidle has been charged with murder, after hunting down his ex-wife and killing her. Seidle had their 7-year-old child in his car throughout the entire ordeal.
The couple divorced in May with 9 children between them. According to reports there was a dispute about the financial terms of the divorce and the child support money.
After an argument between Phil Seidle and his wife Tamara, Phil chased her down the road while his 7-year-old daughter in the vehicle. The vehicle lost control and crashed, at which point Philip exited the vehicle and shot and killed his ex-wife in front of a neighborhood full of people in broad daylight.
According to prosecutor Mark LeMieux “As Tamara Seidle was trying to flee, her vehicle crashed into a parked car on Sewall Avenue. Philip Seidle’s car then crashed into hers, and he got out of the car, pulled out his handgun, and approached her car, immediately firing into the driver’s side several times.”
Quickly after the shooting, police shut down the roads leading to the area, and began a standoff with Seidle. As onlookers recorded with their cellphone cameras, Seidle held a gun to his head and threatened to shoot as police attempted to disarm him. Eventually, he surrendered to police and was taken into custody.
Although Seidle was obviously dangerous and unstable, no force was used against him to prevent him from firing again. Meanwhile, cops across the country shoot and kill people who are entirely unarmed.
There has been no indication as to what will happen to his 9 children now their mother is dead and their father is in jail.
