Joseph Robert Zoran, 37, was charged with homicide after being arraigned on Friday.

The body of 67-year-old Robert Jack Counterman Jr. was found March 11 by rabbit hunters in a ditch in Gratiot County's Seville Township, about 105 miles northwest of Detroit.

Counterman's last known address was in the Gaylord area in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula.

 The death is being investigated as a homicide, but Counterman's cause of death hasn't been released.
