Categories: 

Homicide charges have been filed in the Luzerne County murder of a New Jersey man who's been missing since 2015.

The District Attorney filed the charges against David Alzugaray and Roberto Torner.

During the five-year investigation, officials learned that the victim, Jose Herran was acquainted with the suspects prior to his disappearance. Investigators say the two men had disputes with Torner and plotted to kill him.

Police believe that in the fall of 2015, Herran was shot, his body dismembered and thrown into the Lehigh River.  Investigators say other evidence was burned in a pit on a property owned by Torner in Foster Township.

State Police searched that property in May of 2018
