Anthony Lopez, 31, was charged with murder after wheeling his wife’s dead body on a dolly and leaving it on the front lawn of a home in Staten Island, New York on Saturday. The New York City Police Department said Friday that an off-duty detective saw him wheeling his wife’s corpse, and chase after him.
Lopez escaped, but thanks to a tip-off from a local, he was caught and arrested the next day. Lopez had apparently shaved his head at some point during the manhunt. His wife was identified as 26-year-old Aduba Obiamaka.
It was confirmed by New York Daily News that Lopez has been arrested more than 50 times for drugs and violent crimes.
