A Maplewood nanny broke up with her boyfriend hours before he fatally stabbed her boss and then chased her down a street in the leafy New Jersey town and killed her in front of a neighbor’s house, authorities said Monday.
Suspect Joseph Porter — who is accused of killing au pair Karen Bermundez-Rodriguez and her employer, Manhattan comedy club boss David Kimowitz — then tried to flee to Cancun, Mexico, with money from his mom, according to court documents and law enforcement sources.

Bermudez-Rodriguez had texted Porter multiple times in the early hours of Saturday, telling him they were done and to return the keys to her family’s home, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
Porter responded that he was upset with the au pair, authorities said.

He then used those keys to sneak into the family’s home in the quiet, high-end suburb in Essex County, where the au pair cared for Kimowitz’s and his wife’s two young girls. The wife and children were away for the weekend at the time.
Porter first walked to the second-floor bedroom with a knife and stabbed Kimowitz to death, the court documents show.
He then tied Bermudez-Rodriguez’s hands with tape — but she was able to escape the home and run down the road, according to the records.

Porter chased the au pair down and stabbed her with a different knife, police said.
A 20-year-old jogger spotted the assault and called police just after 6 a.m., the documents say. The au pair was found with stab wounds in front of a home several hundred yards away. She was taken to Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, where she died.
Kimowitz, who ran the club The Stand near Union Square, died in the house. A knife was found next to his body, the documents show.
Later that morning, Porter tried to fly to Cancun, Mexico, from Newark Airport but he was intercepted by cops, the records say.
A law enforcement source told The Post that Porter’s mom had given him $800 for the plane ticket.
