Illegal Alien Gets 25 Years In Prison After Stabbing Queens Woman 55 Times, Stuffing her In Duffel Bag in Plea Deal
As reported earlier this year, David Bonola stabbed a Queens woman 58 times, stuffed her body in her son’s hockey bag and left the body on the side of the road.
44-year-old David Bonola of Queens fatally stabbed 51-year-old Orsolya Gaal in April.
David Bonola came here 21 years ago from Mexico and is in the US illegally.
Bonola worked as a handyman at Gaal’s home and the two were in an ‘on and off’ intimate relationship leading up to the murder.
Gaal was last seen when she went out to a show at the Lincoln Center in Manhattan in April of this year.
Bonola arrived to Gaal’s residence just after midnight and the two got into an argument in the basement.
Bonola stabbed Gaal more than 55 times in the basement while her 13-year-old son was upstairs asleep.
Bonola was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, criminal tampering and criminal possession of a weapon.
However, Bonola has agreed to plead guilty to first-degree manslaughter in a plea deal with prosecutors and only got 25 years.
Bonola also faces 5 years probation after his release and may be deported, Fox 5 NY reported.
Fox 5 NY reported:
A man accused of stabbing a Queens mother two death and stuffing her body into a duffel bag has agreed to plead guilty to first degree manslaughter for the killing.
David Bonola, 44, of Queens was awaiting trial for the murder of 51-year-old Orsolya Gaal. Police say the April 2022 killing came after the pair, who had been romantically involved, had an argument in her home.
She was stabbed in excess of 55 times inside the home with her son in a bedroom upstairs, according to police. A trail of blood marked the path her body was dragged.
A doorbell camera caught Bonola pulling the duffel bag down the street around 4:30 a.m. with Gaal’s body inside it. A person walking their dog found the bag a few hours later.
Bonola appeared in a Queens court on Wednesday and admitted to killing her as part of his plea deal. He faces 25 years in prison and gave up his right to appeal his conviction. Bonola faces 5 years probation after his release and will then be subject to deportation.
Bonola was originally charged with second-degree murder, criminal tampering, and criminal possession of a weapon.
A judge will sentence him on November 16, 2022.
