PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - The man accused of killing a Temple student is on his way to formal arraignment.
Joshua Hupperterz, 29, will face all charges Dec. 20, which include murder, abuse of corpse, possessing an instrument of crime, and other related charges.
Temple student Jenna Burleigh's body was found in early September on property belonging to the defendant's grandmother. The property is located about 140 miles north of the Temple campus in Paupack Township, Wayne County.
The 22-year-old Burleigh, of Lower Salford Township, vanished at the end of August. She was last seen on surveillance video leaving a bar near campus with Hupperterz, a former Temple student. She had just started at Temple as a junior transfer student.
Authorities allege Hupperterz moved Burleigh's body from his apartment near campus to a property in Jenkintown before transporting her to Wayne County.
A coroner found Burleigh died of blunt trauma and strangulation.
According to the attorney for Hupperterz, the 29-year-old is denying the allegation.
