Jobs Americans Won't Do?

I suppose that includes murder.

NEW CITY, N.Y. -- A prosecutor described in nightmarish detail Thursday the rape, mutilation and killing of a suburban housewife, allegedly at the hands of a worker who was supposed to be power-washing her deck.

The assault on 42-year-old Mary Nagle was so brutal that crime-scene investigators found a piece of her ear and hanks of her hair scattered around her bedroom, Rockland County District Attorney Michael Bongiorno said at the start of the defendant's trial. One of the victim's fingers was nearly amputated as she tried to fend off her attacker.

The April 29 killing, in a quiet, manicured neighborhood of New City, exposed the danger of a common situation in the suburbs _ the husband at work, the kids at school, the housewife home alone and a contractor on the scene, often with access to the house.

Bongiorno said Nagle was in her bedroom, changing into tennis clothes, when the attacker sneaked in with his knife, "tearing her clothes off, beating her mercilessly, slashing her with the razor."

"Mary Nagle put up a courageous struggle, but she was no match," he said. The attack culminated Nagle being strangled so hard that it broke a bone in her neck, he said. *snip*

The prosecutor alleged that Herrera took off his bloodied shirt and pants and put on fresh clothes that belonged to Dan Nagle. He also tried to wash off blood in the bathroom, he said. And as he fled, he passed Mary Nagle's sister Ann Fallon, who had come looking for her because of the missed tennis date.

Fallon saw blood outside the bedroom and called police, who found "a scene out of a horror movie," the district attorney said. The Clarkstown police force, which covers New City, searched the area and Herrera was spotted a mile away from a police helicopter. He was arrested and charged with murder, and within a few days police found his discarded original clothes and Nagle's cell phone and wallet, which Herrera allegedly stole.

As he was fleeing, police said, Herrera made several calls to numbers programmed into Nagle's phone, lewdly describing what he had done. Bongiorno said Thursday that the calls were made specifically to female friends and relatives.

The district attorney said investigators had a trove of DNA evidence to work with. Nagle's blood was found on all the clothes Herrera wore, he said. Herrera also left behind his own blood, from cuts on his hand, arms and neck, as well as his semen, he said. And Herrera and Nagle had each other's DNA under their fingernails, he said.
Thank you Mr. President, gosh let's have more amnesty please?
