Prosecutors in New Jersey say a missing woman found in a shallow grave was buried alive.
Fatima Perez disappeared from her home in Camden on Monday. The body of the 41-year-old woman was found Wednesday about 20 miles away in Monroe Township. Authorities said her mouth and eyes were covered with duct tape before she was buried.
Police say one of the suspects was giving Perez a ride to buy a car. Her family said she was carrying about $8,000.
