    Question To Be Proud??: Newark records first homicide-free month in 40Yrs +

    NEWARK — For the first time in more than 40 years, an entire calendar month has come and gone without a homicide in the state’s largest city.

    It's been 32 days since a homicide took place in Newark, marking the first time there has been a slay-free calendar month in the city since 1966.

    Police Director Garry McCarthy said he hopes to best a 43-day period from March to April of 2008, the longest span of time without a slaying in the city since 1961. Ten homicides have occurred in Newark since Jan. 1, and none have taken place in the South Ward, long believed to be Newark's most dangerous section.

    The statistical quarter, which spans the first thirteen weeks of the year, officially ended on March 28th.
