Eng, a SUNY New Paltz student at the time of his mother's murder, was sentenced to 22 years to life in prison. He previously pleaded guilty in New York State Supreme Court to one count of murder in the second degree on September 16.

“This sentencing finally closes a challenging chapter for this family and their loved ones,” said District Attorney Bragg. “I thank our prosecutors for their diligent work and commitment to ensuring accountability," Bragg said.

At his sentencing Eng said his sentence was justice and that he deserved it, adding his mother deserved a better son.

Paula Chin, 65, from Manhattan was found dead in her second home in New Jersey in early 2019. Investigators said she was stabbed three times.

On February 4, 2019, Eng reported his mother was missing for several days. In reality, however, Chin was viciously beaten and stabbed by her son in the apartment they shared in Tribeca in an attempt to accelerate his inheritance, officials say.

“This was a brutal and shocking murder of the defendant’s own mother, and while nothing can undo this tragedy, today’s guilty plea represents an important step towards justice. My thoughts are with those who continue to mourn Ms. Chin’s loss,” Bragg said.

Eng was accused of slashing her mother's throat and stuffing her into a garbage bag. Chin was found dead, stuffed inside a garbage bag, on the premises of her Morristown, New Jersey home.

Bloody rubber gloves were found during the investigation, along with blood stains and duct tape. Chin was found with multiple stab wounds and signs of blunt impact to her head.

In a series of text messages after the murder, Eng reported:

“It’s done,” “I’m free,” and that he “got rid of [his] problem.”

Within days of the murder, Eng began the process of changing the passwords on his mother's bank accounts, searching for inheritance lawyers, and researching various ways to dispose of his mother’s body, including a Google search for “diy bone meal.”

In February 2019 police arrested Eng, Caitlyn O’Rouke, who officials say was Eng's girlfriend and a teen for allegedly carrying her body in a garbage bag from Manhattan to New Jersey.

Eng and O'Rourke both attended SUNY New Paltz.
