A 58-year-old man knifed his wife to death and wounded his teenage daughter Tuesday during a bloody clash inside a Queens apartment, according to cops.
The dad allegedly stabbed his 45-year-old wife repeatedly in the chest and body at their apartment on 69th Ave. near 195th Lane in Fresh Meadows about 3:50 p.m. He also lunged at his 18-year-old daughter, slicing her in the wrists and hands, police said.
Despite the deep cuts to her hands, the horrified teen managed to grab a cellphone and dial 911, sources with knowledge of the case said.
Responding officers grabbed the assailant outside the apartment building, said witness David Ortiz, 55.
“I saw (him) down on the ground with his hands soaked in blood,” Ortiz said. “He was down on the ground and the detective was right on top of him.”
