A woman accused of bludgeoning her mother-in-law to death was arrested in a bus terminal outside of an Atlantic City casino Friday night, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.

Tasneem Diwan, 47, of East Windsor was charged with murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon Saturday morning after she was spotted in a bus terminal of the Tropicana casino in Atlantic City Friday night.

Authorities have been looking for Diwan since Tuesday night after her mother-in-law, 73-year-old Safia Diwan, was found bludgeoned to death in a home the two shared in East Windsor.

Police responded to a 911 call and found Safia Diwan’s body at a front office of a house on Mozart Court, an upscale area of East Windsor around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police believe Tasneem Diwan used an unknown object to repeatedly strike her mother-in-law over the head before leaving the scene, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said Saturday.

Some residents who lived near the Diwans’ house on Mozart Court said Saturday that they did not know the family and that they stuck to themselves.

“I wouldn’t even know who lived in the house,” one neighbor, who did not want to be named, said Saturday.

Atlantic City police took Tasneem Diwan into custody late Friday night and she was taken back to East Windsor where police continued the investigation before filing charges Saturday morning.

Bail was set at $1 million cash or bond by Mercer County Superior Court Judge Robert Billmeier.

More: No indication on the killer’s citizenship status or country of origin however her husband went to school in Karachi, Pakistan.

Dr. Nauman Diwan, the victim’s son and the woman’s husband, is a local internist.

A neighbor uncomfortably described the family as a nice, normal “American” family. Video here

  1. And the parade of the Devil’s own continues without pause. How do these Allah Freaks even get NEAR our countries, let alone INSIDE?! And who knows how this Muslim Crapola is going to play out in the end? All we normal people can do is sit back and enjoy the Muzzies horror show. . .

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
