An East Orange man has pleaded guilty to charges that he killed the mother of his child and disposed of her body.
Tyler Rios, 27, admitted to killing 24-year-old Yasemin Uyar. Rios pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated manslaughter and second-degree desecrating of human remains.
Authorities say that Rios strangled Uyar in July 2021, put her body in the trunk of his car and then kidnapped their son, Sebastian Rios. The kidnapping spurred an Amber Alert.
Officials say that Rios drove to Tennessee and dumped Uyar’s body in a wooded area off Interstate 40.
Sebastian Rios was found unharmed on July 10 in Monterey, Tennessee, when Rios was taken into custody.
Rios is expected to be sentenced on June 10. He could serve 25 years in prison.
