HAMILTON TOWNSHIP - Police have made an arrest in connection with a gruesome double murder.

According to police, Yusuf Ibrahim was arrested Sunday in a Bayonne apartment after an extensive search across multiple locations.

State police say Ibrahim shot and killed two men he knew during an argument in a parked car sometime after Feb. 3. Police say Ibrahim cut off the men's heads and hands, and then buried the body parts separately in the woods in South Jersey.

Authorities believe Ibrahim was trying to make it harder to identify the men by burying their heads and hands separate from their bodies.

The dismembered body parts were sniffed out by a cadaver dog in Buena Vista Township after authorities there received a tip.

Ibrahim faces two counts each of murder and desecration of human remains.

AP wires contributed to this report.
