A man walked into a police stationhouse in the Bronx, New York on Wednesday to offer a chilling confession about the slaying of his girlfriend, police sources said.
Angel Felix Rodriguez, 24, showed up at the 48th Precinct just before 6 p.m., confessed the killing, surrendered the keys to his apartment and gave officers his consent to search the home, sources said.
When investigators opened the door to the basement apartment at Nelson Ave. and W. 174th St. in Morris Heights, they found his 21-year-old girlfriend, Indira Ramirez-Rivers, dead in the bathroom, sources said.
She had suffered trauma to the neck; police believe she was strangled.
An autopsy will determine her cause of death.

Neighbors and friends said Rodriguez was prone to fits of violent jealousy, and that police were a regular fixture at their apartment.
“She was at my friend’s house on Friday. She wanted to go back to her apartment and pack her stuff and leave him,” her friend, Andy Rodriguez, 18, told the Daily News. “I didn’t expect him to do anything like this.”

Both worked at bars in the Bronx, neighbors said.
He worked as a busboy at Salsa Con Fugeo in University Heights for the past few weeks, where workers said they never had any problems with him.
“He was very jealous. She was very sexy and he didn’t like the way she dressed on the street,” said one neighbor.
Detectives swarmed their basement apartment Wednesday night, while Crime Scene Unit officers helped them process evidence at the scene.
Rodriquez was charged with murder and manslaughter for the slaying. Police are still working to determine a motive for the killing.
