Man snapped woman's neck after she refused marriage proposal, cops say

Man snapped woman's neck after she refused marriage proposal, cops say”

According to NBC10, Christopher R. Tucker, 34, asked 19-year-old Tara Serino to marry him at his home.

After killing her and wrapping Serino's body in a rug, Tucker fled to IL, where he was arrested on Halloween and "admitted to strangling her, which he did not believe killed her, poking her eyes out, snapping her neck and hitting her with a hatchet until he thought she was dead", according to an arrest warrant cited by multiple sources.

Serino was last seen by her family very early Monday last week.

The teenager told Tucker "no" and revealed to him that she was having sex with other men, police said. That is when Tucker snapped. "When she said no he just snapped", added Trooper Beohm.

Then, Tucker allegedly began choking Serino until he thought she was dead. He then wrapped his girlfriend in a rug and fled to IL.

Meanwhile, troopers in Pennsylvania searched Tucker's home after being contacted by Tara Serino's father and discovered the woman's lifeless body in a bedroom. Tucker confessed to the police at the hospital that he had killed her as she refused to marry him and left her body at his residence before driving to Illinois, NBC News Philadelphia reported.

It was there that Tucker reportedly alerted authorities that he had committed a heinous crime at his home in Albany Township. Until then he will remain jailed in IL. State police have been working to extradite him back to Pennsylvania. An investigation is also still ongoing into Serino's murder.

At 9.30pm on October 31, Mr Serino called state police in Hamburg, asking them to perform a welfare check at Christopher Tucker's home.

Following Tucker's visit, at around 1.30pm on November 1, Fred Serino contacted police to report his daughter missing, leading to the gruesome discovery.

"He was behaving in a very odd and unusual fashion, so he was taken to the hospital", Berks County District Attorney John Adams told WFMZ-TV.

A mutual friend of the pair, Chad Flyte, said they had only been dating for five months.

"I'm so sad for this poor girl because she had no idea". "He's my friend, he's my brother, but he did something awful".
