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.
