State and local police are investigating the discovery of human remains of a Newtown woman who went missing in 1984.

A corrections officer remains hospitalized after being shot in the face by police during an apparent burglary at a central New Jersey pharmacy.

Brick police responded to the store around 6:30 a.m. Saturday after an alarm there was activated and found 30-year-old township resident Ralph Stoia III inside, said Mike Mohel, deputy chief of the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.

Stoia pointed a .40-caliber pistol at police, but apparently didn't fire it before being shot once by an officer, Mohel said.

Stoia was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, where he was in critical but stable condition Sunday.

Stoia, a corrections officer at the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility in Yardville for about two years, faces several charges, including armed burglary and weapons offenses.
