Ramapo Police arrested 66-year-old Riad Dib of Wesley Hills last Friday for allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend Cecile M. Garbarino, 68, also of Wesly Hills, to death with the heel of a boot.
Dib called police 12:45 a.m. Friday, January 25 after the incident, which left Garbarino unconscious at her house on 171 Grandview Ave., Wesley Hills. At 1 a.m. she was pronounced dead. Dib was initially reported by police to live at the same home, but later the son of Garbarino said the pair had split about a year ago, and Dib continued to occasionally harass the now deceased woman.
The alleged assailant Dib has been charged with second degree murder and remanded to Rockland County Jail without bail.
