A MAN is accused of putting a sword through a woman and keeping her body in his home for days after an argument, police officers say.
Corey Quincy has been charged in the death of Rhonda Pearce.
Quincy, 21, and Pearce, 43, were involved in a dispute over drugs, court documents say.
He allegedly got so angry that he physically attacked Pearce and slapped her in the face.
Pearce threatened to call the police, court documents say, and then Quincy stabbed her with a “long, sharp sword.”
Police say Quincy from Shamokin PennsylvaniaPearce was killed on April 5 but her body was not found until three days later.
Court documents state that after the murder, Quincy turned to more drugs while trying to figure out his next steps.
Police went to Quincy’s home after receiving a tip from the man’s father.
Quincy’s father allegedly called the police over concerns his son was using drugs, reports The Daily Item.
When police arrived at Quincy’s home on April 8, he told them the truth about the incident, adding that the crime scene remained unchanged, apart from dragging Pearce’s body to another room, court documents say.
He was then taken into custody.
Quincy was charged with manslaughter and the abuse of a corpse by Shamokin District Judge John Gembic. He was denied bail.
“This is our community. They don’t expect things like this to happen in our community and it does and we have to deal with it,” Shamokin Police Chief Ray Siko told WNEP.
Quincy remains in Northumberland County Jail.
