Jury selection started Monday morning in the case of a 28-year-old man who allegedly strangled his pregnant girlfriend inside a one-bedroom efficiency apartment near Chelten and Chew avenues in East Germantown.

Roysce “Yusef” Haynes is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the Sept. 2012 of Atiya Majah Perry.

Opening arguments in the case are expected to commence on Tuesday morning.

Haynes’ statement makes mention of having met Perry in March and getting married in July. He claimed that her family was “telling her not to wear her [Muslim] garb,” and this caused problems in their relationship.

Perry’s family did not want to talk immediately after the hearing, but her mother thanked NewsWorks for covering the story. There were a dozen supporters there, some wearing RIP Atiya T-shirts.

In August, Perry went to Albert Einstein Medical Center to seek treatment for what she thought was a concussion suffered when she fell onto the floor after Haynes threw her onto their bed during a scuffle, the suspect’s statement maintained.

The next month, Perry told him she was pregnant. He told detectives that “I didn’t believe she was,” so they got into another altercation when he accompanied her to a pre-natal appointment that had never been scheduled.

Two days later, Perry would be dead. According to Haynes statement, he unsuccessfully tried to resuscitate her. He did not call for medical assistance, however.

In arguing to get first-degree murder charges reduced to third-degree, and the unborn-child homicide dismissed, defense attorney Wendy Ramos unsuccessfully argued that it wasn’t premediated, and he did not know that his wife was pregnant at the time.

“He basically flipped,” she said.

Who flipped? Wendy Ramos is defending a serial wife beater! The war on women is being defended…by women.

The agents were checking on Haynes in relation to a 2011 case in which he pleaded guilty to simple assault and was given 18 months probation, according to court records that stated aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person charges were withdrawn.

Seven years earlier, he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and was sentenced to up to 23 months incarceration and two years probation.

UpdateMan gets 35 to 70 years for choking pregnant wife to death

Two years after choking his pregnant wife to death after an argument over obedience, a Germantown man was sentenced to 35 to 70 years for the slaying.

Roysce “Yusef” Haynes, 29, was sentenced Tuesday, the Daily News reported.

Haynes was convicted in April of third-degree murder and homicide of an unborn child for strangling Atiya Perry, 24, to death, on Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012.

Evidence at trial included Haynes’ confession to homicide detectives that he murdered Perry, who was his wife under Islamic law, after arguments in part related to her family telling her not to constantly wear her Islamic garb. In Haynes’ statement he told her she was “disobedient.”

Perry was seven weeks pregnant at the time of her death.

  2. This guy is a time bomb. Philly courts are notoriously lenient and the judges and are super liberal Democratic appointees, so if someone got two years on ag assault (or county life as they call it here, as much as you can get and still stay in the local Philly jail system) then you can bet it would have been a felony charge with a mandatory minimum in most other states. No surprise he got out in two and killed someone.

  3. He better get a democrat judge. Otherwise, he might be reprimanded.
    Of course, why was she with a muslim? Sounds suicidal to me.

  4. buy now you would think any muslim women with even only half a brain would relise muslim men are bludgers an beat there wifes and would convert to cristianity, most ethnic men have been known as hard working people who strive hard to get a decent standard of life. not these muslims, you would think the muslim women by now would inter marry just to love some one who will treat them equal live a reasonable life style with out critising everyone around them and making asses of them selves like all muslims do, so she got what she deserved .

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
