Amanda WaydaSHICKSHINNY, PA – Police have two men and one woman in custody after they were accused of strangling their friend who was dying of an overdose, then dumped his body in the woods.

According to reports, 21-year-old Joshua Rose accidentally overdosed while doing drugs at the home where 20-year-old Amanda Wayda and 19-year-old Preston Layfield were present.

Instead of calling 911, Wayda called 22-year-old Tyler Mirabelli and asked him to come over and take Rose to the hospital. So far, so good right?

But while in the car the three came up with a different plan. Driving past the hospital, Wayda allegedly put a plastic bag over Rose’s head before Layfield strangled Rose to death with a set of jumper cables.

It took around four minutes for Rose to finally die, but once he did the trio stopped for gas – but not before putting glasses and a hat on Rose to make him look alive. Afterwards, the three are accused of dumping Rose’s body in the woods near some railroad tracks.

There’s not a lot of details on how police were alerted to Rose’s murder, but one report says it was Wayda who called to report she had witnessed Layfield murder Rose. It wasn’t until police questioned Layfield that he informed them that Wayda was the one who put a bag over the victim’s head, then handed him the jumper cables while telling him he “needed to do this.”

All three have been arrested and charged with aggravated assault and conspiracy. The Lackawanna County District Attorney’s Office said the charges will probably be upgraded after an autopsy was completed.
