NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man has been charged with the murder of a 22-year-old woman whose body was found in a parked car in the Bronx Saturday morning.

Richard Bloomfield, 40, of the 600 block of Fox Street in the Bronx, was charged late Saturday with murder in the death of Madonna Martin.

Bloomfield confessed to police that he had killed Martin before he was charged, police told 1010 WINS.

Just before 4:30 a.m., police received a 911 call about a woman in a parked white two-door Honda CR-Z at Bruckner Boulevard and Brook Avenue in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. The woman, Martin, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bloomfield was arrested at the scene, and taken to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, where he was treated for an injury to his left arm.

The New York Post reported investigators believed Martin was killed in Bloomfield’s apartment, and that he brought her body to the desolate Bruckner Boulevard intersection about half a mile away, where he tried unsuccessfully to commit suicide by slashing his wrists.

The Post reported that Bloomfield was Martin’s boyfriend.
