Is it just me, or does all of this sound like WAY too much work? If you want to get rid of your wife so badly, wouldn't it be easier to call a divorce attorney??
NEW YORK -- Police on Thursday arrested a Queens man who they say confessed to killing his wife, cutting her head off with a handsaw and leaving her body in a suitcase on a Harlem street.
The man, Oscar Pilamunga, 24, kicked, punched and strangled his wife, Beatrice Yually, 23, on May 31 after she threatened to leave him for her boyfriend, a law enforcement official said.
The killing took place in the couple's basement apartment in the Corona neighborhood, said Inspector James Luongo, the chief of the Manhattan detective bureau. The head has not been found, he added.
The day after the killing, Pilamunga put his wife's headless body in a garbage bag, stuffed it into a suitcase and took it by taxi to Harlem, where he left it on West 124th Street, a law enforcement official said. It was not clear how the body got to 130th Street and Lenox Avenue, where it was found.
Come on, man; anyone who has spent any time at all in New York knows it's easier to get a body onto a subway train than a taxi....
