An arrest has been made in connection to the body found near the Idlewild Park Preserve Tuesday morning, said police.
The NYPD has also identified the victim as 27-year-old Kadieann Chambers of Jamaica.
According to the District Attorney’s Office, her alleged murderer, 30-year-old Carlos Evelyn, is Chambers’ common law husband and father of her child.
“The defendant is accused of strangling his wife during an argument that turned physical and deadly. His alleged actions leave their young son without a mother and a father who faces the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison,” said DA Richard Brown in a statement.
Evelyn has been charged with second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.
