24-years-old man accused of strangling his 15-years-old girlfriend to death in the U.S.

A man, Joshua Williams, 23 has been charged with strangling a 15-year-old girl in the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago.

According to CBS News, he’s charged with first-degree murder in the death of Amarise Parker. Police said Williams strangled Parker on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, in the 7200 block of South Phillips Avenue. Her body was found in the building around 7:24 p.m. the same day.

Prosecutors said Williams and Parker had been in a dating relationship, and her family had filed several missing persons reports when she would leave home. It is reported that Parker had been staying with the suspect for several days before the murder.

On Sunday, December 10, she went to the home of a neighbor of Williams, and asked to use the phone to call her mother to get picked up. When her mother went to Williams’ home to pick her up, she couldn’t find Parker, who called her again the next morning asking to be picked up, prosecutors said.

This time, when Parker’s mother went to pick her up, she got in her mother’s car and went home with her, and told her mother Williams would not let her leave. Parker told her mother she escaped when Williams thought she was in the bathroom. When Parker’s mother left their apartment that day to pick up her other daughter from school, she returned home to find Parker gone.

Prosecutors said Parker had returned to Williams’ home on Monday, December 11, and stayed overnight. Neighbors heard them arguing that night, and around 7 p.m. on Dec. 12, Williams called his cousin and a friend and told them Williams was foaming at the mouth, and he didn’t know what to do.
