DINGMAN TOWNSHIP — A man is charged with tampering with evidence following a deadly neighbor dispute in Pike County.

On November 2nd, Howard McElnea, 78, and Jeffrey VanSlyke, 68, had an argument that police say turned deadly.

Now, police say VanSlyke’s son, Adrian Khillawan, 43, of Milford, had moved evidence and threatened the McElnea family.
