Prosecutor: Camden County man accused of murdering hunter arrested in Pennsylvania
A man accused of murdering a hunter in Pine Hill has been arrested in Pennsylvania after an intense manhunt, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.
Authorities say that 38-year-old Gibbsboro resident Shawn Massey was found in Bensalem around 4 p.m. Police say that a Bensalem police officer was driving in the town and recognized Massey.
Massey is accused of stabbing 54-year-old Gloucester Township resident Joseph Bottino on Dec. 23. Family members told police Bottino was known to hunt in the area.
Massey was taken into custody without incident. He was formally charged with homicide on Saturday. He is now being held at the Bucks County Correctional Facility and is awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
