A Monmouth County Grand Jury has returned a two-count indictment against the man who in June was found in Atlantic Highlands with the dead body of his former girlfriend in the back seat of his vehicle earlier this year, Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Lori Linskey announced on Wednesday.
Jordan J. Vilcatoma-Correjo, 28, of Edison, has been charged with first-degree murder and second-degree disturbing human remains in connection with the death of 26-year-old Sonia Gonzalez, also of Edison.
The case background …
Shortly before 7:45 a.m. on Friday, June 10, Atlantic Highlands police responded to a call from the area of Asbury Avenue between Navesink and Grand avenues where they found a Honda Accord. Gonzalez’s body was found in the vehicle, and Vilcatoma-Correjo was also at the scene and taken into custody.
An investigation by members of the Prosecutor’s Office, Atlantic Highlands police, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Edison Police Department resulted in Vilcatoma-Correjo being criminally charged.
He remains at the Monmouth County Correctional Institute (MCCI) pending future court proceedings. The Grand Jury indictment included an aggravating factor that would make him eligible to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, if convicted.
Anyone with information about this matter is still being asked to contact MCPO Detective Thomas Manzo at 800-533-7443 or Atlantic Highlands Police Department Detective Lieutenant Michael Zudonyi at 732-291-1212.
