Off-Duty NYPD Officer Stabbed To Death, Her Estranged Husband Is In Custody

Bronx, NY – An off-duty New York police officer was stabbed to death inside her apartment early Monday morning, according to police.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) responded to the 31-year-old officer’s home at 780 Grand Concourse at approximately 2:50 a.m. on June 13 after receiving a 911 call, WNYW reported.

Investigators said the 911 call was placed by one of the victim’s relatives who had received a call from the victim after the attack, according to WABC.

Police said they arrived to find the officer had been stabbed multiple times throughout her body, WNYW reported.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The officer’s 34-year-old estranged husband turned himself in at a local NYPD precinct a short while later, according to WNYW.

His identity has not been released.

Charges against the alleged killer are pending, according to WABC.

Police are withholding the murdered officer’s name until family notifications are complete, WNYW reported.

She was assigned to the NYPD’s Transit Unit in Brooklyn, according to WABC.

Investigators said the couple has a three-year-old son, but that the little boy was not at the apartment at the time of his mother’s murder.

The boy was being cared for by out-of-state family members, WNBC reported.

The NYPD said they have not responded to calls involving the couple in the past, according to WABC.
