Diners were shocked to see a waitress stabbing a customer in the heart after he made a comment to her that she did not like, according to police in New York.

Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced that the 37-year-old waitress was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for fatally stabbing an acquaintance who was seated in the restaurant where she worked, which was owned by his family.

Lan Shui Yu, 37, of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, was sentenced by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Neil Firetog, after she pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

According to the investigation, at approximately 10:00 p.m., Jian Yang Zhang, 44, went to Lucky Zhang, a restaurant located at 5622 8th Avenue.

He sat down at a table and allegedly made a comment to Yu. Yu then slapped the victim and punched him in the head. She then picked up a knife, stabbed him in the back and then in the heart.

The victim then walked outside of the restaurant and collapsed.

Shortly thereafter, Yu left the restaurant, stepped over the victim’s body and went to a friend’s house nearby. She cleaned herself up and confessed the stabbing to her friend.

Zhang was taken to the hospital, but died of injuries due to the stab wound to the heart. Police responded to the location, located the defendant and she told them that the victim cursed at her so she stabbed him.

The entire incident, including the homicide and the defendant’s actions thereafter, was captured on video.
