NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A mother and her four children were stabbed to death in Brooklyn on Saturday night, and a relative of the children’s father has been charged with their murders.
As CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez reported, the accused killer — Ming Don Chen, 25 — was led out of the 66th Precinct police station in Borough Park, Brooklyn handcuffs Sunday evening. He was set to undergo a psychiatric evaluation 24 hours after the deadly attack.
The massacre happened around 10:45 p.m. on 57th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Police responded to the home after receiving a report that one person was stabbed inside, CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell reported. But when officers arrived, they found five people unconscious with stab wounds to their upper bodies.
Linda Zhuo, 9; Amy Zhuo, 7; and William Zhuo, 1, were pronounced dead at the scene.
