What does the body do immediately after death?

My character is sitting in a room with the body of the woman he just strangled/broken her neck (I haven't decided which yet and if it makes a huge difference to the rest of this please yell)I'm trying to describe exactly what the body is doing. From my (limited) knowledge, people don't just die and be still, there's twitching, noises etc and I'm searching for as detailed as possible description of this process.

It turns out that google isn't my friend on this and searches for strangulation, asphyxiation, spinal cord injuries and 'how long does it take for a body to die' just aren't bringing up what i need.

Any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance
