From the NY Post:
“A man stabbed his girlfriend to death in Brooklyn this afternoon, then turned the knife on himself, police sources said.
The two got into a fight, and he attacked her in an apartment on 51st Street near Third Avenue at about 10:30 a.m., sources said.
The stabbed woman, 31, was able to run out of the apartment, where she collapsed in the street. She was pronounced dead at Lutheran Hospital.
The man, 44, then stabbed himself in the neck, and was found in a hallway inside the apartment building. He was also taken to Lutheran Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.”
If he had used a spoon, it would have hurt more.
