A 21-year-old New Jersey man is accused of using a blunt object to kill a stranger last summer and authorities say he has been indicted for murder.
Around 2:30 a.m. on June 28, 2020, police responded to a call and found Nohora C. Agudelo, 37, with severe head injuries in New Jersey.
An investigation was completed and resulted in Oliver I. Tzarax-Lopez, 21, being identified as a suspect in this case. He was criminally charged on August 5, 2020, the Daily Voice reported.
Tzarax-Lopez remained at large for more than three weeks after the alleged murder, but he was arrested at a diner in New York City on Aug. 27, 2020, authorities said.
Recently, a Union County Grand Jury returned a three-count indictment on Tzarax-Lopez, officials said.
Tzarax-Lopez was officially charged with first-degree murder, as well as two related second-degree weapons offenses in connection to the death of Agudelo, police said.
