MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- A Mount Vernon man who is facing charges of killing his girlfriend told detectives that he committed the act during a bout of jealous rage, according to LoHud.com.
Lucius Crawford, 61, allegedly stabbed his girlfriend, Tonya Simmons, in December 2012 when he suspected she was seeing someone else, LoHud.com reported.
