Authorities charged a Staten Island man with a 38-year-old murder out of Teaneck.
Joseph Labosco, 71, was one of two men who shot and killed Wayne Eckhart of Manhattan and left his body in a remote area off Teaneck Road, where it was found on Oct. 1, 1980, Bergen County Acting Prosecutor Dennis Calo said Monday.
The other -- George King of New York -- died in June 2007 at 76 years old, he said.
Calo's Cold Case Homicide Unit -- working with the partnering New Jersey State Police -- cracked the case after interviewing various witnesses and forensic testing by State Police, the prosecutor said.
Labosco has been in the federal Manhattan Detention Center serving a sentence for an unrelated crime, he said.
A first appearance hadn't yet been scheduled.
