A Corning man is in jail after allegedly attacking and killing a 26-year-old woman early Friday morning in her Walter Smith Terrace apartment.

Brett R. Heffner, 29, of Walter Smith Terrace, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Keli Collins, who also lived at the complex, but in another building.

Corning Police Chief Jeff Spaulding said at about 1:12 a.m. Friday, patrolmen were dispatched to Walter Smith Terrace, formerly known as Stewart Park Apartments, for a report of an unresponsive woman. The victim was located and city police, firefighters and AMR Ambulance began administering life-saving measures.

Spaulding said efforts were unsuccessful and Collins died.

Corning City Police began an investigation into the incident with the help of the Steuben County Sheriff's Office and the Steuben County District Attorney's Office.

Spaulding said police believe Heffner attacked Keli Collins while she was in her apartment. Heffner and Collins knew each other, but lived in separate apartments in separate buildings within the complex.

Police also allege that Haffner stole Collins' vehicle after killing her. Departments from throughout the area were advised to be on the lookout for the vehicle.

Spaulding said shortly after 2 a.m. Friday, Hornell City Police located the vehicle and took Heffner into custody without resistance.

Members of the Corning Police Department, New York State Police and the Hornell Police Department continued the investigation in Hornell, Spaulding said.

At the same time, he said Corning Police, along with investigators from the New York State Police, are continuing the investigation in Corning.

Spaulding said the investigation into the murder will continue and updates may be released later with more information.

Heffner was arraigned Friday in Corning City Court and sent to the Steuben County Jail without bail. He is scheduled to reappear at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 9 in City Court.

    Here’s a classic Japanese saying for you.
    It’s one of the most recognized aphoristic statements today.

    Sandys said, Honestie the best policie, which in modern English is…
    Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
    It originated from Lady Mary Montgomerie Currie’s poem Tout vient a qui sait attendre.
    Not only that, but you can use aphorisms in your writing to summarize your central theme.
    But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
    It’s better safe than sorry, right.
    Michael Corleone from The Godfather II disagreed with that.
    Have you ever felt frustrated when other people didn’t meet your expectations.
    Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
    Finally, All things come to those who wait is a good aphorism we’re all familiar with.
    There must be a method to your madness.
    But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
    It’s a great saying, but it’s not something you’d necessarily repeat over the dinner table.

    But, the aphorism is short and sweet.
    What does it mean.
    Remember that.
    Have you ever felt frustrated when other people didn’t meet your expectations.
    That’s not what you expected, was it.
    It originated from Lady Mary Montgomerie Currie’s poem Tout vient a qui sait attendre.
    And then.
    How many times have you heard one of the following aphorism examples.
    Proverbs, on the other hand, can be much longer than aphorisms and adages.
    Fall seven times, stand up eight.
    Another example comes from Spider-Man, where Uncle Ben turns to Peter Parker and says, With great power comes great responsibility.
    Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
    Finally, Actions speak louder than words is another classic example.
    But these days.
    Aphorisms can act as a guideline to help narrow the focus of your work.
    How do aphorisms differ from adages and proverbs.

    It’s better safe than sorry, right.
    Thomas Jefferson also mirrored this general idea when he said, I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
    Yup, you guessed it.
    It’s easier to do it yourself rather than try to explain it to someone else.
    It originated from Lady Mary Montgomerie Currie’s poem Tout vient a qui sait attendre.
    Your stories can benefit from this method too.
    Don’t judge a book by its cover.
    Aphorisms often use metaphors or creative imagery to express ideas.
    It’s better safe than sorry, right.
    George Washington is known for his wise sayings.
    This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
    Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
    The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
    Aphoristic statements also appear in everyday life, such as daily speeches made by politicians and leaders.
    Let’s get started.
