BERKS COUNTY, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Officials released new gruesome details Friday in the murder of a Berks County man back in October.

The body of 28-year-old Anthony DelCollo was discovered in a park on Mount Penn in Lower Alsace Township on October 25.

Both Smoot and Lachina are being held on murder charges without bail.
