The man who dragged his dead pregnant girlfriend out of a car and left her on a Brooklyn street corner has been charged with her fatal strangulation, Brooklyn prosecutors said Friday.
Kelvin Philp, 25, allegedly shoved mom-to-be Tatiana Walton, 27, out of the passenger side of his car early Wednesday around 1:40 a.m. and left her dead body in front of her home on Lorraine Street at the Red Hook Houses, cops said.
Two witnesses saw Philp at the scene of the crime, with one telling police they saw him “drag” something out of the car before getting back into the driver’s seat and speeding away, according to a criminal complaint.
The Shirley, Long Island, man was later picked up by cops in Suffolk County and was charged with second-degree murder Thursday afternoon in Brooklyn, cops said.
At his arraignment Friday afternoon, prosecutors revealed about an hour after Philp allegedly left Walton’s body on the street, he was captured on Ring surveillance video abandoning the couple’s 2-year-old child in front of a home on 84th Street in Jackson Heights, Queens.
The child was later found by police all alone near the location and was placed into the custody of the Administration for Children’s Services.
Philp was remanded and is expected back in court on Feb. 3
