Valerie Reyes 24 of New Rochelle New York

The 24-year-old New Rochelle woman was last seen on January 29 and was reported missing the next day after she did not show up for work.

"We are, of course, devastated for my daughter's death, but I'm just beyond grateful that they found her murderer", her mother told reporters. "I was praying that wasn't her in the suitcase".

Police say a suspect was arrested in the slaying of a woman who was found dead in a suitcase in Greenwich, an affluent community in CT.

Cops arrested Javier de Silva, of Queens, on Monday night, a week after the grisly murder of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes.

The ex-boyfriend of the NY woman whose body was found inside a suitcase in CT is held without bail on a charge carrying a potential death penalty.

'She was very scared, very frightened, ' Sanchez told The Journal News.

Greenwich police Tuesday identified the suspect in the killing of Valerie Reyes as Javier DeSilva, who was arrested in Queens, N.Y.

Da Silva made an appearance in federal court in White Plains, New York, on Tuesday to face multiple charges, CBS2's Tony Aiello reported.

"She said, "Mami, his mother has cancer and I want to support him.' She was an angel like that", Reyes" mother, Norma Sanchez said.

Highway maintenance workers carrying out a routine sweep found her barefoot with her shirt unbuttoned and her hands bound behind her back.

Greenwich Police Captain Robert Berry issued a statement last week relaying the community's "heartfelt condolences".

"M$3 y daughter started getting really frustrated with him, and it ended quick", she told CBS New York's Tony Aiello.

Reyes had worked at a Barnes & Noble store in Eastchester, New York, since it opened two-and-a-half years ago, according to the bookstore chain.

Autopsy results are pending in the case while a funeral for her has been scheduled for Wednesday, with a viewing on Tuesday.

"I asked about her ex-boyfriend".

"Reyes did tell her mother what turned out to be true: "'I'm afraid someone is going to murder me".

DeSilva is scheduled to make an initial court appearance in a federal court in NY on Tuesday.

"At this unimaginably hard time, we are asking for love, support and respect to our family for the loss of my attractive daughter Valerie Reyes who is now resting in heaven", he said.
