The Monmouth County prosecutor has charged Andreas Erazo with murder in the death of Abbiegail Smith. Erazo is expected to make a court appearance on Friday afternoon.
Abbie’s body was found Thursday morning near the apartment building where she lived in Keansburg.
She was last seen in her apartment around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday and reported missing by her mother about an hour later.
The prosecutor had described it as an “isolated crime.”
