Man accused of Tamaqua woman's murder headed to trial

Published March 18. 2014 01:20PM

Homicide and related charges against an Allentown man murdering a Tamaqua woman in January will go to Lehigh County court.

Anthony Darrell Heath, 25, is accused of killing Angela Steigerwalt, on Jan. 31 by strangling her with a wire from a sound system.

Heath then took her body to Flagstaff Road in Jim Thorpe, where he set it on fire.

A Lehigh County district judge found sufficient evidence during a preliminary hearing this morning to send the charges to court.

According to court testimony, the two had been romantically involved for about a year, and Heath became angry when Steigerwalt balked at driving him to a custody hearing.
