Funerals Planned for Slain Englewood Mother, 5-year-old Daughter

Teaneck man has pleaded not guilty in the killings

Funeral services will be held Tuesday for an Englewood mother and her 5-year-old daughter who prosecutors allege were brutally murdered by the woman's boyfriend.

Viewings for 41-year-old Tam Marie "Tammy" Pitts-Gaddy and her daughter, Natasia Gaddy, will begin at 9 a.m. at Community Baptist Church in Englewood, with funeral services set for 11 a.m.

Michael C. Brady, of Teaneck, stabbed Pitts-Gaddy to death during an argument before smothering her young daughter, who witnessed the killing, prosecutors said. Brady and Pitts-Gaddy dated for about three years, according to authorities.

Brady, 34, pleaded not guilty last week to charges including murder and weapons possession. He remained held on $2 million bail Sunday afternoon, jail records show.
