Official: Teen brothers charged in NJ girl's death
CLAYTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey prosecutor says two teenage brothers have been charged with murdering a 12-year-old girl whose body was found in a recycling bin.
Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton says Autumn Pasquale of Clayton died in a manner consistent with strangulation.
He says the boys are 15 and 17. He says the girl was lured to the boys' house, where her belongings were found. Those included her bicycle.
She had been missing since Saturday and her body was found late Monday in the recycling bin of a home about seven blocks from her own.
