    Swinging his arm back and forth, a prosecutor yesterday showed a Common Pleas jury how defendant Thomas Strode allegedly killed his girlfriend Asia Adams - a promising 21-year-old West Chester University student - in her Germantown home in 2004.

    Strode and his best friend, Simeon Bozic, took a knife, put it to Adams' neck, and dug into it at least three times, Assistant District Attorney Carlos Vega said in his closing argument at Strode's murder trial.
    "They started back and forth, and back and forth," Vega told the jury, as he swung his arm back and forth.
    "If she's unconscious, she's jerking like crazy," he said. "If she's not unconscious, oh, the pain she must have felt!"
    Strode, 28, of Germantown, also faces charges of arson, robbery, conspiracy and possession of an instrument of crime. After a weeklong trial, the jury is expected to begin deliberations Monday. Authorities contend that sometime on Nov. 7, 2004, Strode and Bozic beat Adams with a shovel, then sliced her throat after forcing her to sit with her bottom half naked in a basement chair of her home on Seymour Street near Pulaski Avenue.

    I thought city authorities in Philly had cleaned up Germantown? Obviously they forgot a few pieces of garbage. Poor girl :(
