1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon With More On The Killings
In Flatbush, there are still blood stains in the hallway of the apartment where 47-year-old Alfonette Scarder lived with her son. Neighbors on St. Pauls Place said they saw paramedics trying to revive the woman and were praying that she would pull through.
“There’s a cop downstairs and I asked the cop — did she make it? And he just shook his head and said ‘she passed,’” one neighbor told 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon.
Sources said 27-year-old Ingham Scarder called 911 himself and told police he accidentally stabbed his mother Wednesday after having an argument with her.
Alfonette Scarder died of multiple stab wounds. Neighbors like Pamela can’t believe she is gone.
“She’s a wonderful soul. So sad she had to go that way,” she said.
People in the community said Ingham Scarder apparently suffered from bi-polar disorder, but said they never suspected or worried he would hurt her.
On Tuesday, police found 45-year-old Christiana Jones unconscious in the basement of the Brownsville house she shared with her son. Atiba Brown, 23, has admitted to hitting Jones over the head with a brick and strangling her with a cord, according to law enforcement sources.
