HAMILTON TWP., New Jersey (WPVI) -- Authorities have made an arrest after a woman's burned body was found at a Mercer County, New Jersey cemetery.

Investigators said Wildmann met the victim, 39-year-old Lisa Lloyd, of Ewing, on an app called "Skip the Games."

Authorities said Lloyd drove her car to Wildmann's home where he tied an electrical cord around her neck as part of an erotic sexual encounter.

Wildmann said Lloyd began twitching and convulsing and eventually lost consciousness.

Once he believed she was dead, investigators said he placed her body in a trash can and kept it there for about a day.

He also admitted to disposing of her car, phone and personal items, authorities said.

Investigators said Wildmann then put the trash can with her body in the trunk of his car, bought gasoline and drove to the St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church cemetery.

Surveillance video surrounding the cemetery showed him driving a two-tone Chevy S10 pickup truck with a New Jersey license plate.

According to officials, at about 1:48 a.m., the vehicle could be seen stopping for several minutes right where Lloyd's remains were later found.

Authorities conducted a motor vehicle stop. The driver was identified as Wildmann.

A female passenger in the vehicle was released from custody after being interviewed by detectives.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call HTF Detective Sherika Salmon at (609) 989- 6406.
