Neighbors in Staten Island were shocked and stunned Monday, a day after a woman was beaten to death, and her husband was charged with the crime, allegedly all because he suspected her of cheating him.
Police Capt. Peter Leach told the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester that the fight involved neighbors on a Rochester street.
A burglary suddenly turned violent on the Upper West Side. A superintendent’s wife stumbled on a burglar in the basement of her building on West 81st Street. The intruder was carrying a baseball bat.
