Man charged in death of Md. woman who was found in Pennsylvania woods

A Pennsylvania man has been charged in the death of a Maryland woman whose body was found in a wooded area of south-central Pennsylvania.

State police in Franklin County say troopers responded to an Interstate 81 overpass at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and found a distraught man threatening to harm himself. The highway was closed, and three hours later the man was taken into custody.

Police say the investigation led troopers to a wooded area of Waynesboro, where they found the body of 29-year-old Kristy Hoke of Hagerstown, Md., who had been reported missing Monday. Investigators said she appeared to have been stabbed.

Police say 46-year-old Jeffrey Miles of State Line, Pa., was charged Tuesday night with criminal homicide. A listed phone number for him could not be found and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.

So they found the man in the woods or the woman's body in the woods or both?
