Man arrested in murder of bound woman, burned alive in NYC: cops

Police this week arrested a suspect in the murder of a woman who was found burned in a Brooklyn apartment more than two months ago.

Lashawn Duffie, 28, was charged Tuesday with murder and kidnapping in connection with the heinous November 11 killing of 40-year-old Sugerys Ramirez – with whom he was in an unspecified domestic relationship, authorities said.

Ramirez was discovered unconscious in an apartment on the second floor of a building on Van Siclen Avenue near Fulton Street in Cypress Hills after an early morning fire, police officers said.

Duffie is accused of tying her up and setting her on fire and burning her alive, authorities said.

She was pronounced dead by rescue workers.

A death certificate for Ramirez, released by the city’s chief medical examiner’s office, revealed that Ramirez died from “homicidal violence, including thermal injuries,” police said Wednesday.

Police have described her as a squatter.
