A Manhattan jury today found 27-year-old Nicholas Brooks guilty of murdering his former girlfriend, the swimsuit designer Sylvie Cachay. The prosecution said Brooks had strangled and drowned Cachay in a bathtub at New York's tony Soho House after Cachay dumped him in 2010.
Joseph Brooks, who won an Oscar for writing the hit "You Light Up My Life," was found dead in his Upper East Side apartment yesterday. He suffocated himself with a plastic bag and left a long, rambling note that stated he would be cleared of the sexual assault charges he was facing.
The city medical examiner has determined that designer Sylvie Cachay, found dead earlier this month at Manhattan's posh Soho Hotel, was strangled and drowned to death. Her boyfriend Nicholas Brooks has been charged with attempted murder in the case.
