The self-admitted hit man who said he was hired to kill the wife of a prominent southern New Jersey rabbi in 1994 will likely be freed from prison
State corrections officials say that Len Jenoff is expected to be freed February 14, 2014 after spending about 14 years in custody. The 68-year-old Jenoff has been serving a 23-year sentence for his part in the murder-for-hire death of Carol Neulander, the wife of Cherry Hill Rabbi Fred Neulander. She was found beaten to death in their home in 1994. Jenoff broke the case open in 2000 when he confessed his role in the killing and implicated Neulander in his wife's death. Jenoff twice testified that the rabbi hired him to kill his wife so he could carry on an affair, and Neulander eventually was convicted of murder in 2002. Neulander is now serving a life sentence.
