The owner of a high-profile comedy club in New York City and his family’s au pair were both killed at his suburban New Jersey home on Saturday, the authorities said on Sunday.

The police in Maplewood, N.J., responded to a 911 call around sunrise on Saturday about a woman being assaulted at a home. After arriving at the area of Walton Road and Jefferson Avenue, officers found the woman, Karen L. Bermudez-Rodriguez, 26, lying in the street critically injured.

They later found the homeowner, David Kimowitz, 40, dead inside the house, the Essex County prosecutor’s office said.

Ms. Bermudez-Rodriguez, an au pair for the Kimowitz family’s children, was pronounced dead at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. The family’s children and Mr. Kimowitz’s wife, Laura, were not at home at the time of the attack, the authorities said.
