A New Britain Borough man was charged with homicide this morning after the body of his girlfriend was found Friday night in the rear of his vehicle, District Attorney Matthew D. Weintraub announced.

Jason K. Lutey, 42, of the 100 block of Keeley Avenue, was arraigned this morning by video before Senior Magisterial District Judge Leonard J. Brown. He is being held without bail.

Lutey is charged with killing 46-year-old Colleen Patterson, whose body was found by police in the back of Lutey’s 2018 Toyota Highland SUV outside his residence.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Lutey’s sister called 911 around 8:30 p.m. Friday, stating that her brother had killed his girlfriend at his home.

A Central Bucks Regional Police Department officer went to the residence and spoke to Lutey, who said Patterson’s body was in his vehicle, the affidavit said.

The officer found the body wrapped in white cloth with red stains that appeared to be blood, the affidavit said.

The incident is being investigated by Central Bucks police and the Bucks County Detectives, Weintraub said. Additional information will be released as it becomes available.  

Criminal charges are allegations subject to proof in court. The defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
