Orsolya Gaal dead news– David Bonola is accused of 'telling Howard Klein "your family is next" before 'killing his wife'

THE suspect arrested in the Orsolya Gaal murder case returned to her home to discuss their affair, according to the NYPD, before he slashed her throat and killed her.

Sources said that David Bonola, 44, did not have a premeditated plan to murder the mother of two, and killed her after their conversation didn't go over well.

The alleged killer reportedly texted her husband, Howard Klein, threatening him: "Your whole family is next", according to police. Klein was out of town when Gaal was killed.

Bonola is accused of slashing Gaal's throat and then stabbing her nearly 60 times during a brutal attack in the basement of her Queens, New York, home last Saturday, before he dumped her body on the side of a nearby road.

On Thursday, Bonola was arrested and charged with murder, criminal tampering, and criminal possession of a weapon, NYPD told The Sun.

Gaal sat alone at a bar near her Forest Hills home for 40 minutes on Friday before she headed to her house and was killed there, The New York Post reported.

    “[Gaal] was very active on social media,” Boyce said.

    “Investigators will be taking those numbers, connecting them to Facebook profiles, and triangulating them to the home to see if they were there when she was killed.”

    Boyce added that if the killer had “half-a-brain cell” they’d likely have left their phone behind before carrying out the murder.

    Robert Boyce, a thirty-five-year veteran of the NYPD, told The US Sun that investigators will be using Gaal’s cellphone data to create a map of her final movements.

    Bonola's messages to Gaal, conclusion

    In another Facebook post, Bonola wrote, "[music note emoji] Tu mirada enamorada", which translates roughly to "your look in love."

    The comment appears to be a reference to the 1999 song Tu Mirada by Luis Miguel.

    In the song, Miguel croons: "Your gaze in love / In my dreams entangled / It is passion wrapped in fire / Like wind through the flames."

    Later in the song, Miguel repeats: "It is passion wrapped in fire / Because without you I am nothing."
