NY woman accused of stabbing nieces, ages 7 and 9

KATONAH, NY Police say the girls were found with multiple stab wounds on the kitchen floor of their Katonah home on Saturday.

The girls have been hospitalized in serious condition. They are 7 and 9 years old.

Their aunt, Lisa Turkki of East Syracuse, was arraigned on two counts of assault and is being held at a county jail. The name of her attorney was not on record early Monday.

The Journal News says she was watching the girls while the parents attended a concert down the street.

Katonah is a hamlet of Bedford. It's about 35 miles north of midtown Manhattan.
