Chad Irish, 55, was charged with concealment of a human corpse after he was questioned by detectives about the death of 31-year-old Yazmeen Williams, the New York Police Department confirmed Tuesday morning. He was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing, but police said those charges are unrelated to Williams’ death.

Williams’ body was found stuffed into a sleeping bag on top of a dolly and surrounded by black garbage bags in front of a building on E. 27th Street around 5 p.m. Friday. She was killed by a gunshot wound to the head, according to the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office. The dolly was tied to a scaffolding railing by a red strap.

Irish was on parole for a robbery in the Bronx at the time of his arrest, according to New York Department of Corrections data. He has a laundry list of prior arrests and convictions, including attempted arson, assault and numerous charges of robbery.

Williams’ family told CBS that the 31-year-old was about to start a job at the city’s Department of Housing Preservation on Monday. That agency could not immediately be reached for comment.

“She was looking so forward to living, living her life,” her mother, Nicole Williams, told the outlet. “She got her career in criminal justice. She went to Buffalo State University, and she wanted to be a lawyer.”

Williams had a twin brother and younger sister, the outlet reported.

“She used to always take good care of me, and she used to always be proud of me. She was the best sister I could have, and I love her so much. I just wish she could’ve stayed a little longer because I just wanted to grow up with her,” her younger sister said.
