The body of a 65-year-old Morristown mom who’d been missing since Monday was found in a garbage bag outside her home – and her son reportedly is among those charged with stashing it there -- after she was stabbed to death in lower Manhattan.

A trio was charged with “concealing a corpse” after the body of Paula Chin was found Tuesday at her Bailey Hollow Road home, the NYPD said.

Investigators believe someone stabbed Chin in the throat in an apartment she kept in a building she owned in the Tribeca section of lower Manhattan in a fight over money.

Those reportedly charged with illegally concealing the body were identified as Jared Eng, 22, who also lives in the Vestry Street building, along with Jennifer Lopez, 18, of Manhattan, and Caitlyn O’Rourke, 21, of Patterson, NY.

Charges related to the homicide were expected to follow.

Detectives from the NYPD were searching the Vestry StreetManhattan apartment, as well as a vehicle found nearby that they believe was used to take Chin’s body across the Hudson River.
