Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown confirmed that a 55-year-old Flushing, Queens man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the vicious stabbing death of his 68-year-old estranged girlfriend, whose body was found in November 2014, under a table in the apartment the couple shared.
“This was a violent murder scene. The victim had been stabbed more than 300 times — many of the knife wounds to her face. The defendant called 911 and claimed he found the woman dead in the apartment. As a result of this horrific crime, the defendant will be incarcerated for a very long time,” said DA Brown.
Naser Alzein, 55, of Northern Boulevard, Flushing, pleaded guilty yesterday to first-degree manslaughter before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth C. Holder. Sentencing was set for April 27, 2018, when he faces 24 years in prison.
Charges say that on November 8, 2014, between 7:00 p.m. and 11:45 p.m., Josefina Mendoza was stabbed more than 300 times. The 68-year-old woman had over 200 wounds just to her face. The defendant, called 911 to report he had found the woman in the apartment already dead, but Alzein had a cut on his hand and was seen on video surveillance pacing outside the apartment building before going back inside to call the police.
