Man accused of Tamaqua woman's murder headed to trial
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.
