FAIRFIELD, Pa. - A 19-year-old Ortanna, Pa., man was repeatedly stabbed and burned before his body was found early Wednesday at a campsite 500 yards off a wooded trail in Carroll Valley borough, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Police allege Jason Rueben Armstrong, 34, of 16 Snow Bird Trail in Fairfield, stabbed former co-worker Andrew Scott Bosley 15 times in his back, severed his ear and slashed a 4-inch-deep cut in his throat. Bosley's body was found off Ski Run Trail in a rural area of Adams County, Pa.

Armstrong is in jail, charged with criminal homicide, arson, abusing a corpse and other counts, police said.

The pair worked at Liberty Mountain Resort, commonly known as Ski Liberty, the Associated Press reported.

Armstrong was arrested after a vehicle crash and charged with driving under the influence, police said in a release.

Police said the men had been camping together on a vacant lot.


An autopsy performed at Lehigh Valley Medical Center in Allentown, Pa., determined that the cause of death was multiple stab wounds to the victim's torso, police said in a news release. The AP reported that the autopsy revealed that Bosley was stabbed more than 100 times.

Police said Armstrong is being held without bail in the Adams County jail in Gettysburg, Pa.
