A 42-year-old Hamilton man has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of Ewing resident Lisa Lloyd, who was 39.
In addition to the first-degree murder charge, Harry Wildmann was charged Tuesday evening with first second-degree desecration of human remains, third- and fourth-degree weapons offenses, and fourth-degree tampering with evidence.
At about 6:45 a.m. on July 26, police in Hamilton received a call from someone in the Clover Lane area who discovered human remains near the cemetery. Police arrived on the scene and located the burned body of Lloyd.
Detectives collected video footage from the area surrounding the cemetery and identified a two-tone Chevy S10 pickup truck with a New Jersey registration driving past the scene in the early morning of
Tuesday, July 26. At about 1:48 a.m., the vehicle could be seen stopping for several minutes in the area where the remains were found, police said. A short time later, a large fire could be seen next to the stopped vehicle. Detectives located the Chevy S10 pickup truck later that morning in the area of Chambers and East Franklin Streets and conducted a motor vehicle stop. Wildmann was the driver of the vehicle, police said. A female passenger was also in the vehicle. Interviews were conducted by task force detectives and the woman was released, police said.
The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office has filed a motion to detain Wildmann pending trial.
