Jhon Moises Chacaguasay-Ilbis, 21, is charged with second-degree murder and concealment of a human corpse. He was arraigned in Syracuse City Court Thursday morning.

Through a Spanish interpreter, Chacaguasay-Ilbis said he didn't remember anything because he was drunk.

Chacaguasay-Ilbis traveled to Central New York last week to meet with the woman, Joselyn Jhoana Toaquiza, for her birthday, according to prosecutor Alphonse Williams, reports Syracuse.com.
