Robert McGranahan of Old Bridge also faces a weapons charge in the indictment handed up by a Middlesex County grand jury. It was made public on Wednesday.

The charges stem from the death of 65-year-old Edward Demko Jr., whose body was found March 9 at his Sayreville home.

The 26-year-old McGranahan was arrested shortly after Demko's body was found by police. A motive has not been disclosed, but prosecutors have said they don't believe the stabbing was a random act.

McGranahan remains jailed on $1 million bail.
