PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia man has been jailed in the 2014 killing of his girlfriend whose remains were found in June at a construction site.
Forty-three-year-old Jermele Hudson was arrested Wednesday on murder and abuse of a corpse charges in the death of 40-year-old Pamela Lewis.
Her family reported her missing in August 2014 and investigators determined she had been involved in a physical fight with Hudson shortly before she was last seen.
Contractors digging at a construction site in June found what they thought were animal bones, before they also found a human jawbone wrapped in pink cloth, a hip bone, rib bones and pelvic bone days later.
Online court records show Hudson has applied for a public defender, though one has yet to be assigned.
