Long Island Man Stabs, Kills Kids' Mother: Police

Police say a 32-year-old man stabbed and killed the mother of his three children during a domestic dispute on Long Island.

Officials say Kenneth Smith stabbed 28-year-old Krystal Nash around 7:30 Monday morning at Nash's home in Mastic. Smith then fled the scene in Nash's vehicle. A relative in the house called 911 and Nash was taken to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The couple's three children - a 10-year-old boy, a 7-year-old girl and a 4-year-old boy - were in the home at the time of the stabbing but were not injured, police said.

Police say Smith was located in the vehicle in Bellport and arrested on second-degree murder charges.

Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available.
