    NJ - Sviatlana Dranko, 30, raped & murdered, Hillsborough, 29 April 2014


    A Hillsborough man accused of sexually assaulting and killing a female co-worker before setting fire to her townhouse was not involved in a sexual relationship with her, Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey D. Soriano said Friday in a release.

    Juan Jimenez-Olivera, 29, of Hamilton Road was indicted Wednesday in the death of Sviatlana Dranko, 30, on April 29, 2014, Soriano said. Jimenez-Olivera has been charged with murder, aggravated sexual assault, aggravated arson, disturbing, desecrating human remains, hindering apprehension or prosecution, and tampering with physical evidence...

    Jimenez-Olivera remains lodged in the Somerset County Jail in lieu of a $1 million cash bail set by Judge Julie M. Marino.

    The man accused of killing a co-worker in her Hillsborough home admitted he strangled her to death, according to an affidavit filed with the Somerset Court court.

    Juan Jimenez-Olivera, 29, of Hillsborough told police he strangled 30-year-old Sviatlana Dranko and then started a blaze at her home by lighting a bedsheet and the couch on fire... Jimenez-Olivera provided details of the crime that were consistent with Dranko's injuries and evidence at the scene of her burnt home...

    Jimenez-Olivera and Dranko worked together at a pizzeria.

    From August 2015:


    Juan Jimenez-Olivera, 30, pleaded guilty to murder, aggravated arson, desecrating human remains, theft, hindering apprehension and tampering with evidence in the death of Syiatlana Dranko on April 29, 2014.

    Under a plea deal, assistant prosecutor Frank Kolodzieski dismissed the charge of first-degree aggravated sexual assault and Jimenez-Olivera would serve a 30-year sentence without the possibility of parole on the murder charge... [and] an additional five years on the desecration of human remains charge...

    Jimenez-Olivera admitted that he strangled Dranko on April 29, set fire to her body and her Bloomingdale Drive townhouse to cover up the crime, stole $6,000 from her and lied to the police about his involvement in the crime before turning himself in two days later.
