Police in New York City has arrested a man who was identified on surveillance video dumping the dead body of his girlfriend on the expressway.
Goey Charles, 29-year-old, was charged with second-degree murder after he was caught late Friday pulling his girlfriend, Vanessa Pierre, 29, from the passenger seat of his white sedan and closing the door leaving her face-down on the pavement.
The pregnant woman’s corpse remained there from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. before it was discovered off Horace Harding Expressway in Queens.
Pierre died from asphyxia as a result of the neck compression, the Chief Medical Examiner said.
Upon his arrest, Charles allegedly made incriminating statements, police said without adding further details.
