From the New York Post:
A woman’s badly decomposed body was found in her Brooklyn home last night with a cryptic note found near her body that read: “I killed my wife, she was casting spells on me,” sources said.
The corpse was discovered at 10 p.m. in a predominantly Orthodox Jewish area of Midwood, after someone reported a foul smell, according to the law enforcement sources.
The 50-year-old woman had been stabbed multiple times in the stomach.
The body was found in the basement of the two-family house, and appeared to be several weeks old, authorities said
Police took her live-in boyfriend into custody after locating him at a psychiatric facility, where he said that she cast spells on him, sources said. He has not been charged yet.
He may have been committed by a relative.
Neighbors said the couple were observant Jews.
