Man indicted in fatal stabbing of woman at vacant strip mall

November 5, 2017

PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A man accused in the stabbing death of a woman found slain behind a store at a vacant New Jersey strip mall has been indicted on murder charges.

Frank Walker III also faces two weapons counts in the indictment handed up by a Burlington County grand jury. The 41-year-old Wrightstown man remains jailed and it wasn’t known Sunday if he’s retained an attorney.

Walker is charged in the death of 29-year-old Diana Stillwell. She was found July 13 at the mall in Pemberton Township after a pedestrian reported hearing a woman scream.

Prosecutors say the township resident suffered severe lacerations to her upper body and was pronounced dead at the scene. But a motive for the attack has not been disclosed.

Walker was arrested about a month after the attack.
