The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 50-year-old Prem Rampersaud of Queens, after being accused of killing 46-year-old Rajwantie Baldeo, in front of passersby on the street.
Rampersaud has been charged with one count of murder and possession of a weapon. He was booked into jail, pending a bail hearing.
According to the criminal complaint, the couple recently came to the U.S. on tourist visas.
Early on Monday morning, Rampersaud confronted his wife at the corner of 124th Street and 103rd Street, where they had an argument about a man she recently met on the Internet.
Suddenly, Rampersaud took out a kitchen knife and stabbed Baldeo several times in the chest, shoulder and both hands.
Two witnesses who were walking down the street, saw Rampersaud kneeling over his wife’s body doing what appeared to be cutting strokes with a large knife and it sounded like he was cutting bone.
Rampersaud attempted to cut off his wife’s head. Baldeo was rushed to the Jamaica Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
