A federal judge mourning the loss of her son following a murder in New Jersey on Sunday is the same judge that presided over Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice's fraud case.
Federal Judge Esther Salas sentenced Teresa to 15 months in federal prison, while Joe was sentenced to 41 months in prison. Joe has since been deported to his native Italy.
On Sunday, the judge's son was shot and killed by a man dressed as a FedEx delivery driver, CNN reported. The judge's husband was also shot multiple times, but his injuries were not fatal. Judge Salas was not injured in the shooting.
After the horrific attack, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star issued a statement of heartbreak via her lawyer.
"Teresa was very shaken by the news and was very emotional when she heard about it," the reality TV star's attorney, James Leonard Jr., said in a statement to USA Today Network New Jersey. "She told me that [she] would be praying very heavily for Judge Salas and her family. This is absolutely devastating."
On Monday, the prime suspect in the shooting was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, CNN reported.
ABC reported that police believe the judge's husband, a defense lawyer, may have been the intended target. According to the report, the suspect was also an attorney who had a case before Judge Salas in 2015.
