Police: Man charged in connection with remains found in Jackson
Police say skeletal remains discovered in Ocean County last month lead to murder charges Tuesday morning.
They say Alan McGinnis has been charged with the murder of 20-year-old Cody MacPherson.
According to police, MacPherson's remains were found in the Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area in Jackson. Wildlife services were doing a controlled burn at the time.
MacPherson had been missing since September.
Officials say McGinnis stabbed MacPherson in September and dumped his body.
Authorities did not disclose a motive or a relationship between the men.
