ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man charged with murder in the shooting death of a woman whose body was found inside an Atlantic City apartment where they both lived has been arrested.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says 43-year-old Joseph McCoy was arrested last Wednesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, without incident.

McCoy also faces two weapons possession charges stemming from the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Jacqueline Hoyle. She was found dead Dec. 20. An autopsy determined that she died of a single gunshot wound, and her death was ruled a homicide.

Authorities have not said what may have sparked the shooting or discussed the relationship between the two.

McCoy remains in custody pending extradition proceedings. It’s unclear if he has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
