A New Jersey man who was kicked out of a Trenton apartment is now facing charges after the landlord discovered decaying remains of his girlfriend inside a closet.

44-year-old David Gibson was charged Wednesday with the desecration of human remains found in a trash bag inside a closet in his former home on December 23.

Gibson, who was arrested on January 11, admitted to hiding his deceased girlfriend's body after he found her unresponsive last July.
