DA: Flushing Man Who Stabbed 68-Year-Old Girlfriend to Death Pleads Guilty to Manslaughter


March 28, 2018 By Christian Murray

A Flushing man who stabbed his 68-year-old estranged girlfriend to death in 2014 pleaded guilty Tuesday to manslaughter, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.

Naser Alzein, of the Northern Boulevard section of Flushing, stabbed Josefina Mendoza more than 300 times in the Flushing apartment they once shared on Nov. 8, 2014, according to the charges. The victim was found to have more than 200 knife wounds to her face alone that were inflicted between 7:00 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. that evening.

Alzein called 911 and claimed that he had found Mendoza dead in the apartment, according to the District Attorney’s office. However, Alzein had a cut to his hand and was seen on video surveillance pacing outside the apartment building before going back inside to call the police.

“This was a violent murder scene,” said Queens District Attorney Richard A Brown in a statement. “As a result of this horrific crime, the defendant will be incarcerated for a very long time.”

Alzein, who faces up to 24 years in prison, is schedule to be sentenced on April 27.
