Three Sentenced for Using Jumper Cables to Strangle Friend Who Was Overdosing

Three people who pleaded guilty to killing their overdosing friend by strangling him with jumper cables were sentenced to prison Wednesday in Pennsylvania, according to multiple reports.

Preston Layfield, Tyler Mirabelli, and Amanda Wayda all pleaded guilty in August to third-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Joshua Rose, reports WNEP.

Police said at the time of the trio’s arrest that Rose was suffering an overdose when the trio got into a truck with him, drove him down Interstate 81 and strangled him with jumper cables before dumping his body over an embankment in a wooded area.

Before dumping Rose’s body, the trio stopped for gas, putting sunglasses and a hat on Rose so he wouldn’t be recognized, the AP reported.

The outlet reports that Layfield strangled Rose while Mirabelli drove the truck, and that Wayda was Rose’s ex-girlfriend.

Because of the multiplication of wickedness , the love of most will grow cold (Matthew 24:12). Because judgment is not being enforced, men are set in their ways to do evil.
