A 29-year-old Uniondale man was arrested for allegedly killing his pregnant girlfriend from Hempstead and dumping her body on the side of a road in Queens last week.

Police officers arrived at 216-13 Horace Harding Pkwy. in Oakland Gardens, where they found Vanessa Pierre unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the ground in front of the building at about 6 a.m. Friday, according to the NYPD.

EMS personnel pronounced Pierre, who was pregnant, dead at the scene, cops said. She had no signs of trauma and was fully clothed when she was found, according to the police.

The NYPD later recovered surveillance footage that allegedly showed Goey Charles, 29, dragging Pierre’s unconscious body onto the side of the parkway.

Charles was arrested and charged with murder on Monday.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
