QUEENS MAN CHARGED WITH MURDER IN STABBING DEATH OF HIS 72-YEAR-OLD FATHER
Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz announced today that Jaimie Walker, 30, has been charged with murder in the stabbing death of his 72-year-old father. The victim was found Thursday morning in the bathroom of his Queens Village home with multiple stab wounds to his neck. The defendant is additionally charged with criminal mischief for wrecking the interview room inside a police precinct.
District Attorney Katz said, “The defendant in this case is accused of committing patricide. He allegedly beat his father before stabbing him to death. This was a brutal, violent killing.”
Walker, of Hempstead Avenue in Queens Village, was arraigned last night before Queens Criminal Court Judge Jeffrey Gershuny on two complaints, one charging him with murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and the second complaint charging him with criminal mischief in the third and fourth degree. Judge Gershuny remanded the defendant on the murder complaint and set bail at $1 on the criminal mischief complaint. The defendant’s return date is January 20, 2021. If convicted, Walker faces up to 25 years-to-life in prison.
According to the charges, police found Loandows Walker bloody and deceased on the bathroom floor of the apartment where he lived. The defendant allegedly stomped on the elderly man’s head, choked him and then stabbed him several times in the neck.
Additionally, said DA Katz, while at the 109th police precinct, the defendant allegedly repeatedly slammed a table inside the interview room breaking its leg and then smashed the table multiple times against the two-way glass mirror causing it to shatter.
The investigation was conducted by Detective Brendan Parpan of the New York City Police Department’s 105th Precinct Detective Squad.
Assistant District Attorney Kirk Sendlein, of the District Attorney’s Homicide Bureau, is prosecuting the case under the supervision of Assistant District Attorneys Brad A. Leventhal, Bureau Chief, Peter J. McCormack III, Senior Deputy Bureau Chief, John W. Kosinski, Deputy Bureau Chief and under the overall supervision of Executive Assistant District Attorney for Major Crimes Daniel A. Saunders.
