Robert Declementi, 36, is in the Atlantic County Justice Facility charged with murder in his wife’s killing.
The couple’s Facebook pages seem to tell the story of two people in love.
Robert Declementi’s last post, about a week ago, has a photo of the couple that he labeled with the hashtag soulmate. His Facebook page was no longer visible Sunday afternoon.
Rachel Decementi posted video from the couple’s engagement in December 2018.
“There’s something special about you and something I could never find in another person,” he tells her on bended knee before asking her to marry him.
The investigation is being conducted by the Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and Brigantine police.
A detention hearing will likely be held this week.
