How cold to kill a human being and throw them away like trash.

Man Kills Girlfriend

According to The NY Daily News

A 29-year-old NYPD employee was killed by her jealous boyfriend, who stuffed her body in a trash can inside their Bronx apartment, police and friends of the couple said.

Cops on routine patrol noticed livery cab driver Moises Martinez, 52, inside his maroon Lincoln Town Car, which was parked on the sidewalk in front of the building he shared with victim Yajaira Reyes, about 5:40 a.m. Sunday.

Cops told him to scram from the illegal spot outside the building on Walton Ave., but Martinez merely circled the block and returned, seeming nervous. That’s when police questioned him.

When officers entered the couple’s apartment, they saw Reyes’ body crammed into a trash can.

A Guatemalan immigrant, she had joined the NYPD as a traffic enforcement agent less than a year ago.

Martinez was arrested on charges of murder and manslaughter. He has one prior arrest, from 2003, for stealing an automobile, police said.

Martinez and Reyes were raising four kids together, neighbors said. The children were visiting their grandfather in Florida at the time of the murder, a friend said.
Martinez had grown jealous over his much-younger girlfriend, friends said.

“He was getting strange,” said Maximo Pena, a co-worker at Diplo car service. “He believed she was cheating on him.”

Friends said the suspect’s deranged possessiveness sparked conflicts.

“They’re fighting and arguing all the time,” said a neighbor who declined to give her name.

Martinez was well-liked by his employers and co-workers.

“According to the [livery cab] base he was a good, hardworking man,” said Fernando Mateo, head of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers.

“A very quiet man.”

The city medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine how Reyes was killed.

We feel bad for those kids.
