'Preppy Killer' charged with selling drugs
by UPI

NEW YORK -- A man who was convicted in the New York strangling death of a young woman in the 1980s has been arrested again on charges of cocaine dealing.

Police said Robert Chambers Jr., the so-called Preppy Killer, was arrested with Shawn Kovell after officers broke down the door to their apartment, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Chambers was also charged with resisting arrest after two officers suffered hand injuries while apprehending him.

Chambers pleaded guilty in 1988 to manslaughter in the strangling death of Jennifer Levin in Central Park. Chambers contended that the death was an accident that occurred during "rough sex."

He served the full 15-year sentence, often finding himself in trouble for having marijuana or other illegal drugs in his cell, the Times said. He served a 100-day jail sentence in 2005 after police said they found heroin traces in his vehicle.
