Assistant District Attorney Josh Garland appeared in court during Bonola’s arraignment where he claimed, "The defendant and victim were known to each other. The defendant went to the victim’s residence between 12 a.m. and 4 a.m. … to engage her in a verbal dispute."

"Because she knew him, she let him into the house. He then engaged her in a verbal dispute and unfortunately she had to ask him to leave multiple times," Garland continued. "[Bonola] refused to leave and the incident [escalated] with the unfortunate stabbing of the victim over 50 times."

Garland continued to detail how Gaal's former lover allegedly dragged her lifeless body towards a park after stuffing the corpse into one of Gaal's son's hockey bags.

Bonola appeared in court with a ponytail and black jeans. He also wore black sneakers with the laces removed. The alleged killer had a Spanish interpreter despite staying quiet during the court proceedings.

The handyman was remanded without bail before being escorted out of the court hearing.

Judge Anthony Battisiti ordered the handyman to be given medical attention and be put on suicide watch.

Bonola allegedly confessed to killing Gaal and stashing her body in Forest Park after their supposed dispute. Police and prosecutors claim that the escalation came about after discussing their on-and-off-again relationship.

According to sources, Bonola openly spoke to detectives soon after getting picked up Wednesday evening.
