Killed Club Girl's Grisly Final Moments

8/8/2008 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Prosecutors did not paint a pretty picture of Ingrid Rivera's last moments before she was left for dead on the roof of a Manhattan club during Lil' Kim's bday party -- her throat was slit and her head was bashed with a pipe.

At the arraignment for Sayed Rahman, the DA said that Rivera died from "blunt impact trauma" to the head and that "incised wounds to the neck" cut her carotid artery. He's been charged with second degree murder, and will be in custody until his next court hearing August 13.

We're told five members of Rahman's family were there in court, crying profusely.

2nd degree murder is a "crime of passion" where the person has killed in the heat of the moment. In other words, when he brought her up to the roof he did not have it in his head to kill her.

1st degree murder is a "premeditated act" where the person has planned ahead to kill the other person. For this to have been the case, he would have planned to kill her when he brought her up to the roof or sometime around then.

2nd degree murder is a hell of a lot easier to prove in this case than 1st degree murder that is why the charges are 2nd. The prosecutor can go the whole route of his not meaning to when he brought her up there but lost his control at some point. This was the problem with the OJ case. He should have never been charged with 1st degree it should have been 2nd degree.
