Authorities say a resident of a southern New Jersey retirement community fatally stabbed an 88-year-old woman and seriously injured two others in a dispute with neighbors. Atlantic County Prosecutor Theodore Housel says 65-year-old Anthony Milano is in custody and will probably face murder and assault charges.

He had been scheduled to appear in court Thursday after neighbors complained he was disturbing the peace.

Housel says Milano accosted 88-year-old Katherine McGowan and 60-year-old Diane Nehmad with a folding knife at the Village at Linwood about 10 miles south of Atlantic City.

Authorities say 84-year-old resident Eugene Pepper tried to intervene and was stabbed.

Housel says Milano doesn't have a lawyer yet.
