Daughter arrested in connection with fatal stabbing
Police say Nikki Secondino, 22, was arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of her father, Carlo Secondino, 61.
She has been charged with murder, attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Sources say that she first lied to the police, claiming it was a home invasion, but then she confessed.
It’s a family neighborhood”
The stabbing occurred just before 6 a.m. in an apartment above a plumbing and heating company in Bensonhurst.
CBS2 was on the scene as detectives were in and out all morning.
“It’s a family neighborhood. None of this happens on the block like this,” said neighbor Joe Pagano.
Police were called to the home for an assault. Once inside, they found a 61-year-old man stabbed to death, a 19-year-old woman with stab wounds all over her body, and a 22-year-old woman with stab wounds to her hands.
Pagano said the victims were a father and his two daughters.
“They kept to themselves, I don’t know much about them,” he said. “I’ve been here 12 years. They’ve been here just as long.”
Police said one of the daughters claims two men broke into the house demanding property before stabbing the three victims and fleeing on foot.
“I thought it was very bad, because I went out to throw garbage around 7:15 and I saw the helicopter circling. I said, wow, they’re looking for someone,” said another resident.
Detectives and members of the chief medical examiner’s office went in and out of the home and spoke to neighbors. Some woke up to the news that someone had died right next door.
“My roommate was leaving for work at 7 a.m., and when he left he just called me to say that almost the whole street was closed and something happened, someone died,” said neighbor Jhonny Xue.
The 19-year-old woman remains in critical condition, while the 22-year-old is expected to be fine.
