Woman accused of fatal stabbing previously charged with assaultPosted: Updated:
Court records indicate that a woman accused of fatally stabbing her co-worker in Irvington Tuesday morning was previously charged with another crime involving a knife.
Police say Rosa Ramirez fatally stabbed Bonifacio Rodriguez with a kitchen knife at the River City Grille on South Broadway. According to court records in Brooklyn, Ramirez was indicted on assault charges for slashing her boyfriend's roommate last October.
Owner Bobby Manzi says Ramirez was hired just days ago. Rodriguez had been working at the restaurant for years.
Police say the incident occurred just as the popular eatery was preparing for lunch Tuesday. Ramirez, who is pregnant and a prep cook, got into an argument with Rodriguez. It ended with Ramirez stabbing the 39-year old Yonkers father multiple times in the chest, according to authorities. He was rushed to Westchester Medical Center, where he later died.
Ramirez is being held at the Westchester County jail without bail. The 27-year-old faces second-degree murder charges.
She's due back in court Monday.
