A Chinese immigrant has been arrested on five counts of murder in the deaths of his cousin's wife and her four children in a late-night stabbing rampage in their Brooklyn home.
Two girls, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo and 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the youngest child, 1-year-old William Zhuo. Their brother, 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo, and 37-year-old mother, Qiao Zhen Li, were taken to hospitals, where they also were pronounced dead.
Chief of Department Phil Banks says the victims "were cut and butchered with a kitchen knife."
Banks says Chen is a cousin of the children's father and had been staying at the home for the past week or so.
