Police: Body of missing mother found in New Windsor backyardPosted: Updated:
Police say the body of a young mother reported missing nearly a month ago has been found buried behind her boyfriend's home in Orange County.
The gruesome discovery was made behind a home on Riley Road in New Windsor, where Timothy Handel rented out a basement apartment.
Police say 27-year-old Kathleen Connolly was last seen alive around July 7. It is not yet known how she died, but police say Handel has been arrested and charged in her murder.
Homeowner Bonnie Glazier says she thought the couple had broken up when Handel moved in with their two young daughters last month.
