FREEHOLD - Police have arrested the former father-in-law of a man who was found dead in a burning car in Long Branch, one day after arresting the victim's ex-wife.

Police say Thomas Dorsett, 64, was taken into custody today and charged with the murder of 42-year-old Stephen Moore.

Dorsett's daughter, Kathleen Dorsett, 36, of Ocean Township, is being held in the Monmouth County jail after being taken into custody Monday afternoon. She was also charged with the murder of Moore.
