Police: Stamford dentist slashed neck of woman in love triangle


STAMFORD — A local dentist has been indicted for attempted murder after New York police say she attacked her former fiancé’s new girlfriend with a razor blade.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. said Alika Crew, 42, of New Rochelle, N.Y., has been indicted by a Grand Jury for the July 28 attack on another woman.

Crew was arraigned Wednesday in Westchester County Court before Judge David Zuckerman on charges of second-degree attempted murder, three counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, first-degree unlawful imprisonment and criminal possession of a weapon.


Crew pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to lohud.com.

New Rochelle Police Capt. Cosmo Costa said Crew was employed as a dentist in Stamford. Crew is listed as an orthodontist on the Stein Dental Group’s website. A person who answered the phone at the Springdale office declined to comment on Thursday.



According to her bio on the dental group’s website, Crew grew up in Maryland before attending Brown University, the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and The Case Western School of Dental Medicine, where she received her orthodontic certificate and master’s degree in the science of dentistry.


According to the website, Crew has been employed with the dental group “for many years.”

Prosecutors allege that Crew attacked her former fiancé’s new girlfriend, lunging at her from behind the driver’s seat in the victim’s car.


The victim got out of the car and tried to run away, but Crew caught up to her and sliced the woman’s neck with a razor blade, causing significant and possibly permanent damage, prosecutors said. The victim also sustained a serious cut to her hand when she tried to push Crew away, prosecutors said.

The attack occurred a few blocks from where Crew and her ex-fiancé were still living together as the victim was leaving the house after spending the night, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Crew initially left the scene as neighbors came the victim’s aid. Crew then returned and pretended to be a “concerned neighbor,” prosecutors said.

The victim identified Crew as the attacker and she was arrested at the scene, prosecutors said.


Crew, who has been free on $200,000 bond, is scheduled to return to court on Nov. 2.

Jane Seymour watched ‘Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman’ with her grandchildren amid the coronavirus lockdown.

The 69-year-old actress plays Dr. Michaela Quinn-Sully on the TV drama series, and she revisited the show – which ran on CBS between 1993 and 1998 – during the health crisis.

Jane shared: “The parents don’t usually let them watch TV.

“Every once in a while, they get to either watch ‘War With Grandpa’ or ‘Dr. Quinn’ or something.”

The actress joked that the show feels “very appropriate right now”.

Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, Jane explained: “I couldn’t believe that episode two is about an epidemic. We made that how many years ago? Way ahead of our time.”

The film and TV star has also killed time amid the health crisis by having fun in her garden.

She said: “We have an organic garden at the backside of our property.

“We go down, we pick vegetables, they cook with us, it’s been magic. We have enough space here that everyone is safe.”

Meanwhile, Jane previously admitted that she still gets recognised for her starring role in ‘Dr. Quinn’.

The actress also revealed that Mikhail Gorbachev, the former President of the Soviet Union, was a fan of the drama series.

Asked if she still gets recognised for her role, she replied: “Oh absolutely. And all over the world. It’s in, I think, a hundred countries now.

“You know, when President Gorbachev comes up to me and goes, ‘Oh Dr. Quinn, Dr. Quinn.’ You realise that the show probably had even more of an impact in other countries than it did in America.”

Woman dies after crash with truck near Wichita, KS: Sheriff

Update, 4:30 p.m. Thursday:

A woman has died after a delivery truck ran a stop sign and crashed into her SUV, officials said.

Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Tim Myers told The Eagle on Thursday that Linda Keller died after being hurt in a crash Monday afternoon in the northwest part of the county. She was 60 years old and from Cheney.

A sheriff’s office accident report states that Keller was eastbound on 21st Street as Ray Crook was northbound on 247th Street West. Crook’s vehicle “ran the stop sign” and struck the passenger side of Keller’s vehicle.

Keller was taken to Ascension Via Christi St. Francis hospital in critical condition. Crook was taken to the same hospital in serious condition.

Photos from the scene showed a Cintas box truck had caught fire during the wreck.

No citations have been issued and the crash remains under investigation, Myers said.

Original story:

At least two people were hurt and taken to a hospital after a crash Monday afternoon in northwest Sedgwick County.

Emergency crews were called at around 1:30 p.m. to an injury accident at 21st Street North and 247th Street West, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. One patient was reported to be in critical condition, and a second was in serious condition.

The intersection, which is northwest of Goddard, is blocked. The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the wreck.
