A 37-year-old Bronx man already jailed for killing his ex-girlfriend was sentecned Friday to 20 years in prison for trying to hide her remains in a Teaneck home five years ago, northjersey.com reported.
Julio Flores is serving a life term at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining, N.Y. in the brutal slaying of Jaritza Calderon, 28, but would have been eligible for parole in 13 years. Flores was convicted of choking Calderon to death in the Bronx and cutting up her body after she brought him a birthday card.
Flores drove to a vacant house on Ardsley Court, where he was trying to bury the remains in buckets of concrete before the property owner happened by and called police, prosecutors have said.
Authorities initially said Flores used to do work at the house, but at trial he claimed a voice in his head told him where to dispose of the body parts.
A Bergen County jury in July convicted Flores on burglary, hindering apprehension and disturbing human remains.
