Middlesex County prosecutors say Kenneth Saal also faces a weapons count stemming from the June 10 slaying of 26-year-old Carolyn Byington. The 30-year-old Lindenwold man was arrested Wednesday at his home, and it wasn’t known Thursday if he’s retained an attorney.

Police found Byington’s body in her Plainsboro apartment after her colleagues became concerned when she didn’t return to work at a marketing firm in the Plainsboro area.

A motive for the attack and further details on the slaying have not been disclosed.

Neighbors have said they heard faint screams coming from the apartment on the day Byington was killed.
