VOORHEES TOWNSHIP, N.J. — A New Jersey man accused of fatally beating his adult daughter and injuring his wife with a baseball bat has been found dead.

Camden County prosecutors say Voorhees Township police on Tuesday discovered 57-year-old Gregory Kelemen’s body had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He had been missing since his wife, Sheri, called police to their Voorhees home early Monday.

Authorities said Sheri Kelemen told officers she was awakened by her husband, who was beating her with the bat and saying “I can’t take it anymore.”

Their 22-year-old daughter, Katherine Kelemen, was found beaten in her bed. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
