Man Sentenced For Strangling Mother Of 3, Dismembering Her Remains In Bathtub

A Washington man was sentenced on Friday to nearly 28 years in prison for the murder and dismemberment of his date, a mother of three, The Seattle Times reported.

John Robert Charlton, 39, pleaded guilty in the 2016 premeditated murder of Ingrid Lyne, 40, after her body parts were discovered wrapped in garbage bags over a series of days, in three different locations throughout Seattle. Some of her body parts have never been found.

“I agree there are no words that can alleviate the pain I’ve caused,” Charlton said during his sentencing. “For that, I’m truly sorry.”

Lyne, a nurse, “lived life large, even though she was petite,” said King County Superior Court Judge Julie Spector, adding, “I feel like I’ve come to know her in some small way.”

“What you did was vicious and cruel beyond anyone’s belief,” she said, adding that she would give him a life sentence if state

Trio Dresses Up Overdosing Friend In Sunglasses Before Strangling …

Three people from Pennsylvania are accused of heartlessly strangling a 21-year-old man who was overdosing on heroin before dressing him up with a hat and sunglasses and dumping his body in the woods.

Joshua Rose, 21, died in August. First, he overdosed at a home in Scranton. Preston Layfield, 19, Tyler Mirabelli, 22, and Amanda Wayda, 20, allegedly dressed him up so that he looked alive before putting him in a car, according to WNEP-TV. Then, they all took a drive. They even stopped for gas.  

“Bottom line, they drove right past a hospital and continued north on I-81,” Pennsylvania State Police Corporal Mark Prushinski said. “At this time, we are not sure why they did that.”

Instead of seeking out medical attention, the trio allegedly put a plastic bag over Rose’s head, strangling him with a pair of jumper cables.

“Wayda said that she knew Rose was alive prior to the

A Michigan man has been convicted this week of murdering a woman who went missing after a 2014 Halloween party. A search ensued for half a year before her remains were found in a dense woods.

Daniel Clay, 28, was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder for the death of 22-year-old Chelsea Bruck.

According to PEOPLE, Bruck attended the party dressed as the Batman villain Poison Ivy. Her naked body was found six months later covered by tree branches and logs, not long after police found her tattered costume. According to court records Bruck suffered blunt force trauma to the head and had three identifiable injuries, according to court records. Because of the body’s advanced state of decomposition, death by asphyxiation could not be ruled out.

Clay admitted at his trial that he killed Bruck after they left the party together, but insisted that it was an accident. He claimed two had
