EDGEWATER, N.J. -- A missing Edgewater woman was killed and dismembered by her Bergenfield boyfriend, authorities charged.

Raphael Lolos dumped the remains of 31-year-old Jennifer Londono in the Hudson River, then "consistently and repeatedly" used her credit cards, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said late Friday.

A torso cut from the waist to the knees was found by passersby along the rocks of Pier 44 in Red Hook three days after her mother said Londono went missing, authorities said.

It bore a sanskrit tattoo below the right hip, Grewal said.

Detectives at the 76th Precinct showed the photograph to Londono's mother, who told them her daughter got a similar tattoo -- which means "Lily" or "Lilyann" -- in tribute to her late aunt, a family friend told Daily Voice.

Soon after, a leg was discovered along the Hudson River near the 79th Street Boat Basin. It wasn't decomposed and the toenails were painted pink, the NYPD said.

The NYPD then revealed that blood with Londono's DNA was found in her boyfriend's bathtub.

City detectives working jointly with Grewal's office conducted a raid in Linden -- complete with a SWAT team -- and took Lolos into custody on Thursday, the prosecutor said.

He was returned to Bergen County, "suffered a medical episode," Grewal said, and was brought to Bergen Regional Medical Center before being transferred to Hackensack University Medical Center.

Lolos, whose parents once owned the Royal Cliffs Diner in Englewood Cliffs, remained at HUMC in the custody of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office pending a first court appearance once he's discharged, the prosecutor said.

He is charged with murder, desecration of human remains, stalking, hindering his arrest and credit card fraud.

Known as a hard worker, "Jenny" Londono managed the new Luna Lounge, on Armory Street, which had its grand opening on June 8.

Her mother said the Dwight Morrow High School graduate went missing on Sunday, June 25, after closing up the bar, law enforcement sources told Daily Voice.

Although she'd taken time away before, a close friend said family members always knew where she was.
