A Loxahatchee man will face charges in connection with the death of a Belle Glade man whose body was found in Mangonia Park in February.

39-year-old Gilbert Stokes was found inside a vehicle in an industrial park in the 4700 block of Australian Avenue on February 24, 2017.

64-year-old Douglas Mackey was involved in the homicide, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

He's currently being held in the Martin County Jail on unrelated charges.

Once he faces those charges the sheriff's office said it will book him into the Palm Beach County Jail on second-degree murder and home invasion robbery with a firearm.
