NEW YORK (PIX11) — A 69-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing his girlfriend to death in their lower Manhattan home, police said Friday morning.
The deadly dispute happened about 6:30 p.m. Thursday along Downing Street, police said.
Dennis Guglielmo, 69, is accused of stabbing his girlfriend, 59-year-old Alice Birnbaum, multiple times in the chest, police said.
He faces charges of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, NYPD said.
Neighbors said the arrested businessman made the news in 2012 after allegedly getting into a spat with a group of young boys accused of terrorizing the neighborhood.
