A Great Neck woman was arraigned on a grand jury indictment charge for allegedly stabbing a woman to death, according to Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas.
Faye Doomchin, 66, was arraigned on Aug. 28 and charged with second-degree murder. She was remanded and is due back in court Sept. 17. If convicted of the charge, she faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
On Aug. 13 around 4 p.m., Doomchin allegedly stabbed a 61-year-old British woman, Denise Webster, who was in the United States on a three-week vacation, once in the chest with a kitchen knife.
The defendant, the victim and other friends had just finished lunch when the Great Neck woman allegedly stabbed Webster in the living room of her North Road home.
“After lunch together, this defendant allegedly stabbed and killed an innocent 61-year-old woman with a kitchen knife, without warning or provocation,” said Singas. “This is a horrific and senseless crime and my heart goes out to Denise Webster’s family as they mourn her loss.”
