New Jersey man arrested for strangling girlfriend to death then hanging her on a tree

New Jersey is 70% Christian, therefore a 70% chance this guy was Christian.
The poor woman was a Christian, see here:

Hey doesn't the Bible say Jesus was killed then hung on a tree?

"We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, (Acts 10:39).

A Woodbury man who strangled his girlfriend to death with a belt in Camden two years ago, then hung her body in a tree to disguise the grime, was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday morning, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

Joseph Foy, 41, must serve 85 percent of that term before being eligible for parole, according to the terms imposed by Superior Court Judge Gwendolyn Blue.

Foy pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in June and admitted to strangling Kathyleen Trimble, 35, formerly of Mantua with a belt around 8 p.m. on Feb. 9, 2010 outside on South 4th Street between Whitman and Jackson streets in Camden. He then placed her body by a tree in an attempt to make her death appear to be a suicide.

Trimble’s body was found near where she was killed partially buried in freshly fallen snow from the blizzard the night before about 11:46 a.m. on Feb. 11.

Trimble’s mother, Rita Mills, brought her daughter’s ashes to court and spoke at length about the cost of Foy’s killing.

“I think of the horror and hear that she must have felt knowing that she was about to die all alone,” Mills said. “I can hear her calling to me “Help me Mom,” the way she did when she was in trouble, after the defendant beat her and took all of her money.”

Foy’s attempt to pass off Trimble’s death as a suicide was initially successful but Mills always suspected her daughter was murdered, and that Foy was her killer. Mills had to endure regular contact with him in the days after Trimble’s death.

“The defendant then tortured me for five days after he killed my daughter by calling me and asking me, ‘hey, Miss Mills, how’s it going,’ and ‘what are you doing,’ and ‘what the hell are we going to do about Kathy’s funeral,’ She said. “Or, ‘just called to tell you to have a nice day.’ What a piece of garbage the defendant is.”

Prosecutor Faulk extended particular credit to Camden Police Detectives Shawn Donlon and Robert Perkins, who were dissatisfied with the initial suicide ruling and continued to investigate the case. They were able to identify two witnesses that provided information contradicting Foy’s statements to police. Their investigation led to the medical examiner amending the manner of death from suicide to homicide on March 3. He also credited Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Investigator Eric Wren and Assistant Prosecutor Christine Shah.
