How I killed my friend! ‘It took me a half hour to kill her. I set a timer!’

Police have a confession of a man who killed his childhood friend so that he can take over her inheritance.

A New Jersey murder trial was shown a chilling video showing the defendant confessing to killing his childhood friend in an effort to get his hands on her money.

Liam McAtasney is seen in the video describing in callous detail how he killed 19-year-old Sarah Stern as he sun along to the car radio with Anthony Curry in his friend’s car on Bradley Beach on January 31, 2017.

The conversation was filmed just days before McAtasney and an accomplice, Preston Taylor, were arrested and charged with Stern’s.

Police had hidden the camera inside the car, NJ.com reports.

‘I pretty much hung her,’ McAtasney said to his friend in the footage. ‘I picked her up and had her dangling off the ground. It took me a half hour to kill her. I set a timer.’

The man also admitted that Stern’s dog presented the ‘biggest problem for him.’

‘Her dog laid there and watched as I killed her. Didn’t do anything,’ he added in the clip.

While McAtasney continued sharing the details, Curry could be heard singing along to Joan Jett’s ‘Bad Reputation’ and Steve Miller Brand’s ‘Rock ‘N Me.’

‘To keep my mind off it. That’s what I always do,’ Curry admitted in the Superior courtroom on Thursday.

Curry came forward to authorities in January 2017 after his father contacted a retired officer from the Bradley Beach department.

He testified that McAtasney first told him of his plans to strangle Stern on Thanksgiving in 2016.

At the time, he hadn’t thought much of the conversation but grew worried when he learned that the woman had been reported missing on December 3, 2016.

Curry had attended high school with both Stern and McAtasney.

‘He told me he was going to meet up with Sarah, she had found this money,’ Curry said in court. ‘They were going to count it together. He was going to choke her, choke her out. Bring her to the bridge, throw her off and Preston was going to drive the escape vehicle. And they were going to bury the money, and leave the keys in the ignition and make it look like she killed herself.’

The witness said that McAtasney expressed disappointment when he learned that he hadn’t gotten the full $100,000 he thought he was getting.

McAtasney said in the video: ‘The worst part of it is I thought I was going to come out $50,000 to a $100,000 in my pocket. She had one safe that she took money out, and she only had $10,000. And this money, I don’t know if it was burnt or something, it’s f*****g old money. Terrible quality. I don’t even know if I can put any of it in the f*****g bank.’

He would later add: ‘I didn’t get a lot of money but I got enough to live comfortably in my house and throw parties all the time.’

Employees from the Kearny Bank testified that Stern’s money looked to have ebeen printed in the 1980s and was no longer in circulation.

Both Stern and McAtasney had been in the victim’s second home in Avon-by-the-Sea when she found a shoebox full of cash that had belonged to her deceased mother.

After Stern’s disappearance, Curry said that he and McAtasney corresponded on Snapchat because of its ability to get rid of messages. Curry videotaped the contents from those messages.

The messages led Monmouth County Prosecutors to obtain a warrant for consensual recording. Curry then worked to lure the suspect to his car by saying that he needed money for a new camera.

Curry suggests that McAtasney has ‘bread,’ to which the suspect retorted: ‘I need to tell you in person. I’m not trying to be a d—. I have $5,000 and I’m unemployed. … My cash is low quality, they won’t take it. That’s all I can say.’

But according to McAtasney’s lawyer, Carlos Diaz-Cobo, the man was just trying to impress his friend by coming up with the story.

‘The statement to Anthony Curry is not a confession,’ Diaz-Cobo said. ‘It’s an elaborate lie, it’s an audition. It’s a script. It’s not true. … A young, immature boy decided he was going to use this unfortunate disappearance and make up this story.’

Curry admitted, during cross examination, that his friend had a tendency to share fabricated stories with him and that the two often talked about movies together.

Video footage also includes McAtasney telling Curry that he needed Taylor’s help to dump Stern’s body off the Route 35 bridge because he didn’t realize how heavy she would be. Taylor admitted to his role in the killing and testified against McAtasney on the first day of the trial.

McAtasney can also be heard telling Curry that Taylor would kill him if he snitched. He claimed that Curry was the only person to know about Stern’s death besides Taylor.

‘I don’t feel any different, I really don’t think about it,’ McAtasney stated. ‘You always think you’re going to try all these new things and change, but it just doesn’t do anything. It’s weird.

‘It’s a f****** movie, man,’ Curry retorted.

His friend then said: ‘It’s your life. You might as well make it one. What are you going to live some boring ass life?’

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
