GREAT NECK, N.Y. — A woman who suddenly had an "aggressive feeling" and allegedly said she wanted to "rid" her Great Neck home of "evil" fatally stabbed a woman visiting the U.S. from London, Nassau County police said on Tuesday.
Faye Doomchin, 66, was arrested inside the North Road home she resided in with her husband and adopted daughter, police said. She's been charged with second-degree murder in the killing of a 60-year-old woman Monday at 3:52 a.m.
The victim, who has not been identified, was on a three-week visit from England and staying with a man in Queens at the time of the incident, Nassau County police Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said.
The man, who was a mutual friend to both the victim and alleged killer, was invited to Doomchin's home to play piano and enjoy cake and coffee when the attack occurred, according to police.
That's when Doomchin had an aggressive feeling and said she must rid the house of evil, according to Fitzpatrick.
Doomchin then walked into the kitchen, came out with a "butcher block-type knife" and stabbed the victim once in the chest, Fitzpatrick said.
The victim was taken to a hospital were she was pronounced deceased.
Five people were inside the home at the time of the attack, according to police.
Doomchin was previously charged with assault in 1999, Fitzpatrick said.
She is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Hempstead.
