BRONX, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 10- Officials in New Jersey have announced the arrest of a man who will face charges in the death of a Fort Lee, New Jersey man, who was found dead in the trunk of his car in Norwood last month.
Jordan Johnson, 24, was found in the trunk of his luxury vehicle along East 211 Street on January 15. The medical examiner later determined that Johnson died from a broken neck.
On Monday, February 9, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli announced the apprehension of suspect Andre Jamal Thompson, 25. Thompson was arrested on February 4 at a hotel in Laurel, Maryland on an outstanding warrant from Worcester, Massachusetts.
Thompson has been charged with murder, robbery and burglary and is awaiting an extradition hearing before eventually being returned to New Jersey. Thompson is being held on $2 million bail.
Officials believe that Johnson was lured to an apartment in Fort Lee, where he was beaten to death. Thompson used Johnson's cellphone to text Johnson's girlfriend to get her out of the home, when Thompson removed an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry from the couple's luxury apartment.
Molinelli hinted to reporters that additional arrests in the case could be announced shortly.
