News Media: Woman Arrested For Stabbing Brooklyn Mother To Death In A Subway Station
A woman has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a Brooklyn mother to death in a subway station late Monday night. It’s understood the fight started on the train after 9 p.m. when Latanya Watson, 30, got into a fight with the 20-year-old suspect on a train approaching the Sutter Avenue-Rutland Road/East 98 Street station on the No. 3 train line in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
According to information passed by the police to PIX11 News, when the women got off the train at the Brownsville above-ground station, the dispute continued onto the station mezzanine, where Watson defended herself with pepper spray. It was then Mia Simmons allegedly stabbed Watson multiple times.
Watson’s fiancé says she leaves behind a young son around 12 years old and that he and Watson had been dating for 10 years. Martin said through tears Tuesday, “I had plans to marry this woman”.
Around 9:17 p.m., officers responded to a 911 call for the stabbing. They discovered Watson in the station mezzanine with stab wounds to her face, neck and arm. The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center where she was pronounced dead around 10 p.m.
Meanwhile, the police said they followed a trail of blood from the subway station to the suspect’s apartment door, where family directed them to a nearby hospital where Simmons was being treated for a cut on her arm.
Simmons was charged with manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.
