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.
Crawford is charged with second-degree murder for both Simmons and Laronda Shealy, a Yonkers prostitute who was stabbed to death in 1993, LoHud.com said.
