“I stabbed him.”
That’s what authorities say a local woman said when they asked what happened to her husband as he lay on the ground grasping for his final breaths.
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman and Cheltenham Township Police Chief John Norris announced Thursday the arrest and arraignment of Ny Baker of the 7400 block of Overhill Road.
Officers responded to Baker’s home late on Nov. 22 for the report of a disturbance.
Once inside, officers found Darryl Baker, 48, suffering from an apparent chest wound in a second-floor bedroom. Baker gasped for air as police tried to communicate with him, according to authorities.
Medics rushed Baker to Einstein Hospital where he died.
Officers asked Baker’s 52-year-old wife what happened and she responded, “I stabbed him, I stabbed him” according to authorities.
Investigators recovered a 7-1/20inch blood stained knife from the scene and arrested Ny Baker. A judge denied her bail ahead of a preliminary hearing Friday morning on first- and third-degree murder charges, according to court records.
