    Ross Heimlich's body was found in a burning car in September of 2010. His alleged murderers were indicted Wednesday for his slaying.

    Three people accused in the slaying of a southern New Jersey man whose body was found in a burning car last year have been indicted on felony murder charges.

    Denis Catania and Diana Camacho, both of Voorhees, and Damien Leo of Philadelphia also face murder, kidnapping, arson and conspiracy charges in the indictment handed up Wednesday.

    Atlantic County prosecutors say the three conspired to kill Ross Heimlich, a 23-year-old Somerdale resident who sustained blunt force trauma. His body was found in September 2010.

    Prosecutors say Catania and Camacho fled New Jersey shortly after the murder occurred. They first went to Florida, then traveled to various Caribbean countries before being apprehended in Cuba in September.

    All three defendants remain jailed and could face life terms if convicted.
