Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, and at least dozen other New Jerseyans will be holding a coronavirus COVID-19 fundraiser later this month for vulnerable victims of the pandemic in the Garden State. The singers and celebrities will appear from their homes starting 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22. "Jersey for Jersey" will benefit The New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund The fund will provide grants to existing organizations that have a record of caring for vulnerable communities. The money will go to groups that provide "essential services to those in need and to assist those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic."

Some of the others expected to appear on the broadcast include New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley, singer Tony Bennett, actors Danny DeVito and Whoopi Goldberg, as well as comedian Chris Rock. Others include Chelsea Handler, Charlie Puth, Kelly Ripa, Jon Stewart, SZA, and Halsey. You can watch the broadcast on Apple Music and AppleTV apps and listen on E Street Radio on SiriusXM. It will also be carried on TV stations WABC, WPVI, WPIX, News12, NJTV and radio stations 1010 WINS, WCBS 880, CBS-FM, WFAN, New York’s Country 94.7, Alt 92.3 and Q104.3.

There is a $65,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of a person responsible in the shooting death of a 7-year-old boy in Chester earlier this month. It happened around 9 p.m. on Sunday, 4/5, on the 2600 block of Swarts Street. Two cars drove down the street and fired over a dozen shots. One of those shots hit 7-year-old Sinsir Parker in the face. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call police.

A Montgomery County man is accused of strangling his wife to death with an extension cord and waiting two days to call police. 69-year-old Michael Hatfield of Pottstown is charged with first and third-degree murder and possession of an instrument of crime in the death of 71-year-old Mary Hatfield. The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office says that the defendant told authorities that the couple argued on Wednesday, 4/8, and that he used an orange extension cord to strangle her. He did not call police until Friday, 4/10. The incident happened inside their apartment on the 300 block of North Hanover Street. He is being held in county jail until a preliminary hearing.

"This tragic death of Mary Hatfield at the hands of her husband by strangulation is a horrible case of the worst end result of domestic violence," Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said on Monday. "People living in domestic violence need to know there is help available, even in these unprecedented times." Laurel House provides a confidential, 24-hour hotline at 1-800-642-3150. The Women's Center of Montgomery County also provides a 24-hour domestic violence hotline at 1-800-773-2424.

After large crowds were seen gathering at Belmont Plateau in Fairmont Park over the weekend, Philadelphia officials have closed off the area known as "The Plat" to keep people away. Due to the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, Philadelphia officials have issued guidelines that people should not congregate in crowds greater than 10 people. Social distancing guidelines suggest maintaining 6-feet of separation between individuals. Councilman Curtis Jones Jr saw video of the weekend gatherings and informed police and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. "I understand that human beings want to be with each other. It's in our nature. But when you deal with COVID-19 and this virus, to violate social distancing rules - you’re suicidal," Jones said. "And it becomes homicidal when you take it home to your loved ones - auntie, uncle, grandparents." The site has since been locked down and police will be doing more frequent patrols. If you see large groups gathering in public spaces, call 311 or police.
