Man charged in love triangle murder

YONKERS -

An apparent love triangle led to the stabbing death of a Virginia man inside a Bronx housing project and the subsequent dumping of the body in Yonkers, according to authorities.

Police say they discovered the body of 24-year-old DeShawn Cortez-Seaborne last month after he was fatally stabbed inside a fourth-floor apartment in the Edenwald Houses on Nov. 19. Police say the pair dumped Cortez-Seabourne's body inside a duffle bag near a dumpster outside a Wells Fargo bank in Yonkers.

Christopher Myrie, 48, of the Bronx, and his girlfriend Jonisha Graham, 29, are facing charges that they concealed a human corpse. Myrie has also been charged with second-degree murder.

According to a New York Daily News report, the victim was romantically involved with Graham, and Myrie allegedly went into a jealous rage when he caught Graham and Cortez-Seaborne together.

They say surveillance cameras outside the bank and in a nearby shopping plaza led them to Myrie and Graham.
