A 55-year-old woman was found stabbed to death -- with wounds to her neck and torso -- by NYPD officers responding to a building in Brooklyn Sunday, officials say.
Cynthia McLeod lived just a few numbers down from the Van Buren Street address in Stuyvesant Heights where she was found dead around 11 a.m.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 62-year-old man, James Brown, now faces murder and weapons possession charges in McLeod's death. Cops didn't immediately elaborate on their relationship.
