Woman Arrested In Fatal Harlem Double Stabbing

Patch report that a Harlem woman is facing charges in relation to a double stabbing that took the life of a Bronx family man, police said.

Mary Saunders, 37, was arrested Monday and hit with second-degree murder and first-degree gang assault charges, police said. Saunders, a resident of Harlem, is accused of holding down 35-year-old Bronx father Hason Correa while an accomplice stabbed him to death on the night of Friday, Oct. 19, police said.

Officers arrived at 301 W. 152nd St. — located between Bradhurst Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard — just before 11 p.m. on Friday night to find Corea and his father, 56-year-old Wesley Correa, suffering stab wounds to the chest, police said. Both men were rushed to Harlem Hospital, where the younger Correa was pronounced dead.

Correa served in the New York Army National Guard for two years and served active duty in the United States Army for seven years, Pix11 reported. The veteran was a father to three children and had returned home after being medically released from the army for suffering an injury, according to the report.
