Authorities in New Jersey have charged a man with kidnapping in the case of a 20-month-old child found at a gas station in Delaware. Police in Monsey, N.Y., say a woman whose burned body was found in a park is connected to the case. They did not say whether she was the girl's mother.

Dwayne Jackson of Edison also was charged Thursday by the prosecutor's office in Middlesex County, N.J., with endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held in lieu of $750,000 bail.

The child was found Sunday in Newark, Del., and was identified as Jackson's daughter after her photo was distributed.
