FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have arrested four more suspects they say are connected to the kidnapping and death of a New Jersey man whose body was found in the trunk of a car in New York last month.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli told The Record (https://bit.ly/1LkqYsK ) that 26-year-old Robert Martinez, of Massachusetts, faces murder charges in the death of 24-year-old Jordan Johnson of Fort Lee. Molinelli said that 30-year-old Courtney Evelyn, 25-year-old Dyrol Evelyn, and 24-year-old Diana Escotto, all of the Bronx, face charges of hindering apprehension. It wasn’t clear if they had attorneys.

Andre Jamal Thompson was arrested last week in a Maryland hotel room and charged with murder.

Molinelli says Thompson and Martinez allegedly lured Johnson to an apartment he sometimes used in Fort Lee. Thompson was attacked there and eventually killed.
