A Pennsylvania man allegedly admitted to beating and strangling his girlfriend to death in front of her two young daughters as one of them pleaded, “Please stop. You are killing my mom,” authorities said.
Thadius McGrath, 35, was charged with first- and third-degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child on Tuesday over the slaying of his 31-year-old girlfriend, Samantha Rementer, in Bucks County.
McGrath, who authorities say tried to kill himself in the aftermath, admitted to murdering Rementer in their home on June 8 “after she made me mad,” according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by the Courier Times.
He allegedly told cops he hit Rementer with a black step ladder and a lamp in her daughters’ bedroom. He then allegedly strangled his girlfriend with the lamp cord, the affidavit said.
McGrath said Rementer’s children, ages 5 and 2, watched as the brutal slaying unfolded, according to the affidavit.
