Christinia Rubin didn't like it when her dad yelled at her

Why is it that people who should be studied by psychologists, often end up studying psychology themselves? Christina Rubin had graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology and sociology from Pennsylvania State University last spring. But, it apparently aggravated her, and her boyfriend, when her father yelled at her.

Christina's boyfriend, Jeffrey W. Leinheiser heard Christinia's father, Marc Rubin yell at her sometime around Nov. 17 and said, "That's not right. I wish I could kill him." Christinia thought that was a good idea, and they plotted for the killing to take place the day after thanksgiving.

The slaying was quick and easy - a single gunshot to the back of Marc Rubin's head with Christina's .357 magnum revolver. He never knew it was coming, they shot him in his sleep. The couple then fled and stayed in hotels for a week, having no immediate plan to dispose of the body.They returned Dec. 5 after purchasing a chainsaw and planned to chop up the body and dispose of it in trash bags. The dismemberment attempt failed when Marc Rubin's shorts got caught in the chainsaw. Realizing that this was a two man job, Leinheiser asked his friend, Daniel Dougherty to help get rid of the body. After wrapping it in trash bags and an area rug, the crew dragged the body down nine flights of steps, put it in Christina Rubin's car, and dumped it in Hamilton Township. A deer hunter found the body of Marc Rubin on Dec. 8 in a wooded area in Hamilton Township, N.J. The body had been covered in trash bags, rolled up in a beige carpet and duct-taped. Inside the home, police found a chainsaw, blood covered latex gloves, and blood on the living room walls and floor.

Rubin and Leinheiser were charged with first-degree murder and other offenses on Sunday and ordered held without bail. Dougherty was charged with tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse, and was being held yesterday in lieu of $25,000 bail.
