CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — The man accused of strangling an Ocean City woman to death in July 2017 is slated to appear in court Thursday morning.
Paul Kline, 50, of Ocean City, charged with murdering 54-year-old Denise Tarves Webber, is scheduled to appear for a pretrial conference at 8:45 a.m. before Superior Court Judge Sarah Beth Johnson.
Webber’s body was found by police in her apartment at the Wesley Inn, where she and Kline lived together. Authorities said Kline strangled Webber but have not disclosed a motive, according to previous reports.
Ocean City Police responded to Webber’s apartment at the building on Wesley Avenue around 8:40 a.m. July 22, 2017, and found her body. Officials determined Kline killed her, according to previous reports.
If Kline’s case goes to trial and he is convicted, he could possibly face a sentence of 30 years to life in state prison.
He is currently housed in Cape May County jail.
