MONTGOMERY — The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office is "very confident that the four sons of John and Joyce Sheridan played no role in the death of their mother and father," according to Prosecutor Geoffrey D. Soriano.

Mr. Sheridan, 72, died at home while his wife, 69, died at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro after a fire broke out in the bedroom of their home in the Skillman section of Montgomery before 6 a.m. on Sept. 28.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Weekend benefits will aid Princeton non-profits
Season-sational I recently had a craving for fudge and of course that led to a trip to Robinson's in Skillman at the Montgomery Shopping Center on Route 206. Their chocolate fudge is always terrific, but they had a few seasonal flavors that I hadn't tried before, and they will provide samples. If you like pumpkin, you need to stop whatever you are doing and go there. Now. No, right now, and try the pumpkin fudge. It's as if someone took the best pumpkin pie filling you have ever had and turned it into fudge. Visit them online at www.robinsonschocolates.com, or just go there for a taste. Read more...
