TRENTON, New Jersey (WABC) -- Police have charged a Trenton man in connection with a body that was found in a trash bag.
Officials say David Gibson is accused of placing the victim, who was found last month, into a garbage bag after they had died.
Gibson allegedly moved the trash bag to a different area and hid the victim's remains. He did not contact police.
On December 23, the bag was found at a property on Beatty Street by a landlord. Officials say Gibson was evicted from his home on Beatty Street back in November.
The human remains in the bag had decomposed, but Middlesex officials are performing an autopsy.
Gibson was charged with disturbing or desecrating human remains, tampering with evidence, and hindering, officials said.
The identity of the victim and cause of death have not been released..
