A Berks County, Pennsylvania, man choked a female friend and ultimately snapped her neck after she rejected his marriage proposal, Upper Macungie Police told NBC10.
Christopher R. Tucker, 34, of Albany Township, has been charged with murder and criminal homicide for allegedly killing 19-year-old Tara Serino, state police said.
She was last seen by her family very early Monday. Tucker asked Serino to marry him at his Berks County home some time between Monday and Tuesday, Upper Macungie Police said.
She said no and then told him she was sleeping with other men, police said. Then Serino apparently made an off-hand comment that Tucker should kill her.
