Man Who Murdered Girlfriend He Thought Was Pregnant Wanted Community Service
Christian Ferdinand who murdered his 14-year-old Brooklyn girlfriend because he was afraid that she was pregnant, - then burned her corpse and stuffed it in a suitcase — asked if he could do only community service for the crime, court papers reveal.
After Christain confessed in January 2013 that he suffocated Shaniesha Forbes, he asked cops "Do you think I can get some kind of community service?”
On Monday, Ferdinand, 22, was found guilty of second-degree murder for the heinous crime by the Brooklyn jury and he faces up to 25 years in prison.

Ferdinand told the police that Shaniesha had texted him saying she was pregnant and that she wouldn't have an abortion because of her religious mum. Angry, he replied her saying “My n—a, are you serious? Kill that s–t,” the papers stated.
Later on, Ferdinand and Shaniesha met at his cousin's home. While relaxing on a couch, Ferdinard was enraged when Shaniesha kept on talking about her pregnancy. He picked up a leather pillow and suffocated her to death.
According to New York Post, he doused her corpse with Axe body spray and then used a Bic lighter to char her body before stuffing it in a suitcase and tossing it into Gerritsen Bay, court papers state.
“The defendant hoped that the saltwater would destroy any evidence the flames didn’t,’’ prosecutor Robert Walsh said in closing arguments.
“I don’t think God should forgive him. He doesn’t deserve forgiveness. I hope he rots in jail,” the victim’s older sister, Shaquana Forbes, 22, said outside court.
Sadly, investigators reported that she was not pregnant when she died.
What a waste? This is what happens when teenagers want to grow up too fast instead of focusing on their studies. Shaniesha was taken advantage of by her moron and evil killer boyfriend. At the end of the day, their family are the ones left behind to suffer the consequences of their actions. What do all think?
