A Camden man has been indicted on murder charges in the death of a Pennsauken teenager in 2003, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday.

Warren Dixon, 24, remains in jail pending trial in the slaying of Sherita Williams, 16, whose body was found Nov. 29, 2003, beneath a railroad bridge at 36th Street and Hayes Avenue in Pennsauken.

Dixon initially was charged in January 2009 after authorities used DNA taken from Williams' clothes and matched it to Dixon following his arrest years later on an unrelated crime. The grand jury returned the murder indictment last week.

Williams, a popular Pennsauken High School student, was suffocated and found partially clothed with no major signs of trauma to her body. She tested negative for drugs. Investigators have not said how the two crossed paths. There was no indication the two knew one another. Williams had told her parents she was going to meet a friend that night.
