A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Bayonne man wanted for killing his girlfriend in her apartment last week, authorities said Friday.

Crystal Ojeda, 40, was found unresponsive with visible trauma around 1 p.m. Oct. 9 in her Lord Avenue apartment by authorities performing a wellness check, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said. Ojeda was pronounced dead approximately an hour later.

Erick Acosta, 32, was charged with murder and weapons offenses for the incident, Suarez said. It was not clear how he knew Ojeda.

The two were believed to be in a relationship, a spokeswoman with the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said.

Acosta -- who has other aliases including Alexander Ojeda, Luis Cubi, and Jonathan Ortiz -- may be in the Monmouth or Ocean County area, Suarez said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Office of the Hudson County Prosecutor at 201-915-1345 or to leave an anonymous tip on the Prosecutor’s Office official website.
