Man charged in homicide of Montgomery County teen


Jacob Sullivan, 44, was charged with the murder of Montgomery County 14-year-old Grace Packer who was reported missing in July.

Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub announced the charges shortly before 1:30 Sunday morning.

Grace Packer's dismembered remains were found by hunters in a wooded area of Bear Creek Township, Luzerne County, on October 31, more than two-and-a-half months after the 14-year-old girl was reported by her mother to be missing from the family's home in Abington Township, Montgomery County.

Weintraub said Sullivan and Sarah Packer, Grace's mother, conspired to kidnap, rape and murder the 14-year-old girl.
