A Manhattan man has been convicted of second-degree murder for strangling a transgender woman in her Glendale apartment in March 2010, according to District Attorney Richard Brown.

Rasheen Everett, 32, was also convicted Friday of second-degree burglary and tampering with physical evidence in connection to the homicide, said Brown.

He faces up to 40 years to life in prison and is set to be sentenced in December 5.

According to trial testimony, said Brown, Everett strangled Amanda Gonzalez Andujar, 29, inside her 62nd Street apartment sometime after entering the home on the morning of March 27, 2010. About 18 hours later, Everett left the apartment alone with the victim’s camera, keys, laptop, suitcase, coat and cell phone.

Three days later, according to Brown, family members entered Andujar’s apartment and found her body lying on a bed with bleach poured over it.

Authorities arrested Everett in Las Vegas in April 2010.
