NEW YORK – A Staten Island woman has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of the father of two of her three children.
Police responding to a 911 call at 12:45 a.m. Saturday found the victim stabbed in the chest inside an apartment in the Todt Hill Houses.
The victim was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Police identified him as 31-year-old Ruben Jimenez, of Manhattan.
Christina Quinones was arrested later Saturday on charges of murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police say Quinones and the Jimenez had two children together, ages 10 and 4. The 31-year-old Quinones also has a 14-year-old from another relationship. Police say the children were in the apartment during the stabbing.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Quinones had a lawyer who could speak on her behalf.
