TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A man accused of fatally shooting two men in a parked car, cutting off their heads and hands and burying them in the woods in New Jersey has been indicted.

Twenty-nine-year-old Yusuf Ibrahim, of Jersey City, also faces murder, kidnapping, robbery and desecrating human remains charges in the 16-count indictment handed up Monday by a state grand jury. He remains jailed in Hudson County on bail set at more than $3.5 million.

State authorities have said Ibrahim shot and killed 25-year-old Hanny Tawadros and 27-year-old Amgad Konds after he abducted them in February 2013. The two victims were Egyptians who were living in Jersey City.

It was not clear Monday if Ibrahim has retained an attorney.
