Two teenage brothers in New Jersey have been accused of killing a man whose body was discovered in the woods. Authorities have charged them with homicide.


Authorities charged two New Jersey brothers for killing a man. In a statement, District Attorney Matt Weintraub revealed the two brothers Joshua, 17, and Anthony Gamble, 19, are being charged with conspiracy and other related crimes.

The deceased's body was reported to have been found late in the night in the 500 block of East Pumping Station Road in Richland Township. According to reports, Anthony, 19, would be charged as an adult in the case.

While the victim's name is yet to be revealed, authorities confirmed that he was stabbed on his head, neck, upper arm, and chest. An autopsy will be performed, and more information will be given to the public.

Due to the extent of bodily harm caused, the district attorney explained that the case would be treated seriously as the evidence shows a clear intent to kill.

A state trooper discovered the victim's body after seeing a parked Subaru belonging to one of the culprits with its blinkers on. A second vehicle was later found close by, containing a knife and blood.

The trooper found 17-year-old Joshua lying on the ground with blood-stained shoes, and shortly after, he was joined by Anthony. The duo had tried to clean up the scene with sanitizing wipes.

The family is shocked and hopes to get justice for their daughter.

After thorough observation, the trooper investigated the brothers, and it was discovered that Joshua purchased the sanitizing wipes from a 7-11 in Richlandtown around the corner.

It is yet to be determined if the murder happened there and how long the body had stayed before being found. The police and emergency personnel are investigating the case.


In other news, a Florida teenager has been charged for killing a 13-year-old girl who he stabbed more than 100 times. Authorities revealed that he would face trial as an adult.

Fucci allegedly used a hunting knife in his gruesome crime, and the tip of the knife broke off in the scalp of the 13-year-old cheerleader Tristyn Bailey. Before his crime, Fucci has tipped off some of his friends about his intentions.

Relatedly, a 15-year-old who a stranger supposedly murdered was discovered to be an acquaintance of her killer, contrary to what her family had said. The family is shocked and hopes to get justice for their daughter.
