HIGHLAND PARK—Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and Highland Park Police Chief Stephen J. Rizco announced that a borough woman died this morning, apparently after being stabbed in her apartment.
Brandy Williams, 28, of Woodbridge Avenue, was pronounced dead at 7:42 a.m. at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.
The results of an autopsy are not immediately available, but preliminarily, it appears the woman was the victim of a stabbing, authorities said.

Police arrived to find the victim injured in her apartment. She was taken to the hospital, where she died, authorities said.
