Jimmy Humphrey admitted to murdering his pregnant girlfriend, then setting fire to her Springfield Gardens apartment and killing her two-year-old son. He now faces life behind bars.

“[Humphrey] stands convicted of first strangling the mother of his unborn child and then, without the slightest regard for human life, attempted to cover up his crime by intentionally setting fire to her home, thereby taking the life of her innocent two-year-old son,” said District Attorney Richard A. Brown.

In July 2010, Humphrey, 26, said he was in his girlfriend Linda Anderson’s apartment on Anderson Road. He grabbed Anderson by the throat and shoved her to the ground. He also hit Anderson with a bottle of alcohol and used her lighter to set her couch on fire, despite knowing her son, Ayden, was sleeping inside the apartment, according to statements he made to police.

Humphrey then ran from the apartment, leaving Anderson behind with her body on fire and her son in his bedroom. After lying down for a period of time, he walked to a phone and called 9-1-1 to report the fire.

Additionally, Humphrey admitted that he knew Anderson was pregnant, but he did not want to have a family with her. He has been held without bail since July 2010, and on Wednesday, March 6 was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison.
