Plumsted Township

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced today that Arthur Haskoor, 61, of Plumsted Township, was sentenced by the Honorable Guy P. Ryan, J.S.C., to a term of life imprisonment for the murder of his wife Suzanne Haskoor.

The murder took place in their Plumsted home on August 25, 2015. The sentencing occurred this morning.

Haskoor was found guilty by a jury of his peers on June 27, 2019, before Judge Ryan.

Prosecutor Billhimer added “Arthur Haskoor is where he belongs, in prison.

His total lack of remorse at this morning’s hearing was offensive. His children and Susan’s family deserve better.”

Prosecutor Billhimer would like to acknowledge the diligent and tireless work of Executive Assistant Prosecutor Michelle Armstrong and Chief Trial Attorney Michael Weatherstone who ably and skillfully tried the case on behalf of the State. Prosecutor Billhimer also extends his profound gratitude to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Major Crime Unit -- specifically Detectives John Murphy and Brant Uricks, the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Victim/Witness Unit – specifically Carol Froberg and Brook Joensen, the Plumsted Township Police Department, and the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, for their collective assistance in investigating this heinous crime and helping to bring Haskoor to justice.
