BRIDGETON - Three Cumberland County Department of Corrections officers have been charged in connection with a pair of suicides that occurred at Cumberland County Jail this year. 

Tabatha Roman, 31, of Vineland, was indicted by a grand jury Thursday for failing to perform a close watch check Feb. 20, 2017, on Megan Moore, who a medical examiner later determined committed suicide that day.

Roman received a third-degree charge of endangering another person. 

Roman, a corrections officer at the county jail, "did knowingly engage in conduct which created a substantial risk of death to another person," according to the indictment. 

Moore was a 21-year-old Millville resident. 

In a separate matter, Justin C. Cimino, 40, of Vineland, and Nicholas A. Gomez, 27, of Millville, both were charged Wednesday with tampering with public records and endangering another person. 

The charges are linked to the May 27, 2017 suicide of a county jail inmate the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office identifies only as  "D.C." 

County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said Cimino and Gomez made false entries in close watch forms maintained by the Department of Corrections and engaged in conduct "which created substansial risk of death to D.C."

Cimino and Gomez are scheduled to appear in Cumberland County Superior Court on Nov. 9 at 9 a.m., according to the complaints.
