Wife Charged In Hubby Stab Death

A 43-year-old Jackson Heights man was found dead inside an apartment he shared with his wife on 93rd Street on July 11th, in what investigators believe was a deadly dispute between husband and wife.

Cops responding to 911 calls of an assault in progress inside the second floor apartment at 26-24 93rd Street discovered the man unresponsive with multiple stab wounds. Police also found the victim’s 35-year-old wife inside the apartment, with bruises and blood on her face.  
The husband and wife were taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where the man was declared dead on arrival. The wife was treated and released into police custody, and was later charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and weapons possession at her arraignment at Queens Criminal Court, where she was held without bail.

Neighbors told police they went to see what was wrong when they heard “horrible” screams coming from inside the apartment. The neighbors called 911 when the wife answered the door with blood on her face, a law enforcement source said.

The couple’s landlord told police they lived at the apartment for about three years. The couple have two children, including a five-month old infant, authorities said.

Police did not immediately release the couple’s names pending notification of next of kin.
An investigation is ongoing.
