"My prayers are with Judge Salas and her family, and that those responsible for this horrendous act are swiftly apprehended and brought to justice."

Salas has handled several high-profile cases and presided over the 2014 fraud trial of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe.
