A young Los Angeles woman faces up to 16 years behind bars for fatally stabbing a man aboard a train during a heated argument.
On Monday, Irma Monroy, 25, was arrested and formally charged with one count of murder with an allegation of using a knife as a deadly weapon in connection with the slaying of Louis Rabinowitz.
The attack took place on a train near the 7th Street/ Metro Center Station on October 16.
The suspect got into an argument with the 54-year-old victim before she grabbed a knife and repeatedly stabbed him. She then got on a green bicycle and ran away.
The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Monroy was jailed several times for armed assault. Her bond was set at $2,060,000.
“Metro is deeply saddened by this unfortunate incident involving a Metro family member and our thoughts and prayers remain with the victim’s family and fellow Metro employees,” Metro CEO Phillip A. Washington told reporters.
