NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a Newark man has been arrested and charged with killing a woman he was in a relationship with.

Essex County prosecutors said that 55-year-old Michael McCormick was arrested Friday after an investigation by the Essex County major crimes task force and charged with murder and weapons charges.

Authorities say he killed 48-year-old Sharon Hollie on Thursday. She was found dead in her apartment in Newark.

McCormick was in jail on $1 million bail and it wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney to comment on his behalf.
