A Hudson Valley man is heading to prison for killing another man who was with his estranged wife.


On Tuesday, Earl Edwards Jr., of Saugerties was sentenced to 22 years to life in prison for killing Rameen Perry.

In March, Edwards admitted that he broke into his estranged wife’s Village of Saugerties home and stabbed 40-year-old Rameen Perry in the heart around 3:20 a.m. on May 26, 2016.

Immediately after killing Perry, Edwards fled to New York City and purchased a train ticket to South Carolina. Edwards was intercepted in Washington D.C. by members of the Amtrak Police Department and extradited back to Ulster County.

The Office of the Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide and determined the cause of death to be the result of a perforation of the heart due to a stab wound to the chest.

Edwards was identified as the murderer by his wife, who survived the attack by hiding behind a closed door.
