Man Accused of Slashing Wife in Grisly Brooklyn Murder

By

In one of the year's more gruesome killings, a Canarsie man allegedly "went berserk" on Sunday and nearly decapitated his wife with a kitchen knife in their home. The New York Daily News reports, "He stabbed his wife, identified by relatives as Hazel Robinson, 51, in the neck, partially severing her head, according to sources." The normally blood-spattered New York Post, meanwhile, reports soberly that Robinson "was found slashed in the throat around 11:45 a.m., with what police called 'severe injuries to her neck.'"
