BROOKLYN — The man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death, wrapping her body in a moving blanket and dumping her in a Williamsburg parking lot confessed to the killing, according to court papers.
Alex Jeffrey, 30, who is more than 6 feet tall and weighs 220 pounds, stabbed 35-year-old Merceda Young, a mother of two, in the neck during a struggle on Monday evening near Kent and Division avenues, the criminal complaint said.
Young died from "multiple stab wounds to her face and neck," court papers read.
Her body was discovered wrapped in a quilted moving blanket in the lot next to Boro Park Lumber Yard & Home Center Tuesday afternoon.
Neighbors in The Bronx described Young as a hardworking and devoted mother who lived with her teenage son and 10-year-old daughter.
Jeffrey, who lives in Bed-Stuy, was charged with murder in the second degree and criminal possession of weapon. He was held without bail and is due back in court on Nov. 4.
