A New Jersey judge said she’s moving forward, but not moving on, a year after a crazed lawyer killed her son in an attack meant for her.
Federal Judge Esther Salas told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that she has forgiven the killer who showed up to her family’s home disguised as a deliveryman — then fatally shot her 20-year-old son, Daniel Ander, and wounded her husband, Mark Anderl.

Roy Den, an “anti-feminist” lawyer who had argued a case before Salas, tracked the judge down to her North Brunswick home and blasted away when Mark opened the door, striking the husband and her son. Den later shot himself dead.
“I realize that in some part, it’s important to forgive,” Salas
