Brooklyn man arraigned in horrific East New York stabbing spree
Kings County District Attorney Kenneth P. Thompson today announced that a Brooklyn man has been arraigned on second-degree murder and other charges in connection with a stabbing spree that left a 6-year-old boy dead and his 7-year-old playmate seriously injured.
District Attorney Thompson said, “This defendant is accused of viciously attacking innocent and defenseless children who were trapped in an elevator with him. Prince Joshua Avitto was taken far before his time and his family will struggle with this for years to come, as will seven-year-old Mikayla Capers. We are committed to seeking justice for them and to holding this defendant accountable for his actions.”
