A HANDYMAN charged in the brutal stabbing death of a mom whose body was found inside a duffel bag reportedly confessed to the murder during an interrogation last night, NYPD sources told The US Sun.
David Bonola, 44, was charged on Thursday with murder, criminal tampering and criminal possession of a weapon in the relation to the death of Orsolya Gaal, 51, who was found dead in Queens on Saturday.
Bonola was taken into custody at NYPD's 112th precinct last night, a police source said.
According to the source, Bonola confessed to the killing during an interrogation.
He allegedly told officers he'd been having an affair with Gaal and carried out the brutal stabbing during an argument.
A press information officer declined to comment on the claims when contacted by The US Sun.
Bonola, who lives in the Richmond Hill neighborhood of Queens, has no known prior criminal history.
More information on the case is expected to be shared by authorities at a press conference scheduled for 11.30am.

Posts to Gaal's Facebook page show Bonola interacting with the married mom, suggesting the pair were romantically entwined.
In one comment beneath a photo from May 2020, Bonola told Gaal she had the "look of love" and in another called her the most beautiful woman in the world.
Gaal was briefly reported missing by her husband just two weeks later on May 29, 2020.
The circumstance surrounding the disappearance remain unclear, though Gaal returned home shortly afterward and the investigation was closed.
Police have so far refused to confirm how Gaal knew Bonola and whether or not the pair were romantically involved.
Gaal was murdered in the basement of her Forest Hills home in the early hours of Saturday morning after returning from a night out.
She went out to a show with friends at the Lincoln Center on Friday evening, before she was spotted drinking alone at a bar in Queens and leaving around 12.30am.
After returning how, she was repeatedly stabbed in the neck, torso, and arm, suffering a total of 58 stab wounds.
Investigators also found what appeared to be defensive wounds on her hands, suggesting she attempted to fend off her attacker.

Gaal's killer then stashed her body in a black Bauer hockey bag, reported to belong to one of her sons.
The suspect was then seen wheeling the blood-soaked duffel bag away from her home and through the local neighborhood at 4.30am.
A local resident walking their dog discovered the bag in the middle of a sidewalk four hours later, around half a mile from Gaal's home.
On the night of the murder, Gaal's husband received a message from her phone, which read: "Your wife sent me to jail some years ago… I'm back."
The author of the message also threatened to kill the entire family if he contacted the police.
Former Chief of Detectives for the NYPD, Bob Boyce, told The US Sun earlier this week that the text message may have been a "red herring" deployed by the killer to throw investigators off their trail.
'BLOOD SOAKED BOOTS'
Throughout the investigation, police have suspected Gaal knew her killer, due to both the nature of her injuries – with the violence suggesting the attack was personal and fueled by rage – and the fact there were no signs of force entry inside the home.
A report by the NY Post said Bonola was linked the crime by a pair of blood-soaked boots that were left in a trash can outside of Gaal's home.
The US Sun previously reported that three people of interest had initially been identified in the case after their numbers were found in Gaal's phone.
Her family has not yet spoken publicly to address the arrest of Bonola.
Gaal's husband Howard Klein was out of town touring prospective colleges with their eldest son at the time of her death.
