NEW PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (AP) - Authorities investigating the death of a man found in a wooded area in eastern Pennsylvania have named a suspect in the case.

State police charged 20-year-old Ethan Sullivan of Saint Clair with criminal homicide, theft and related counts on Sunday.

Police allege Sullivan killed 22-year-old Jason Hahn, who was known as Jay. His body was discovered Saturday evening in Blythe Township.

Police did not disclose how Hahn died, or a motive for the slaying. Authorities say he was from the Tamaqua area.

Police say Sullivan was already in custody at the Schuylkill County Prison for an unrelated case when he was charged.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for Sullivan.
