A Horrific story coming out of New York on Friday morning, about a New York Man Be-Heading his ex wife, and killing his daughter, then killing himself.
Authorities found Jennifer Schlecht, 42, fatally decapitated with her head in her lap on the bathroom floor of her New York City apartment on Wednesday night, the New York Daily News reported.
Schlecht’s five-year-old daughter was found dead in her bedroom. Her neck had reportedly been cut so deep she was partially decapitated. The girl’s father, Yonathan Tedla, was found hanged to death from his daughter’s bedroom door.
Authorities said the case appeared to be a murder-suicide, and believe Tedla is responsible for both murders. Schlect and Tedla had been scheduled to appear in court for a divorce hearing just hours before their bodies were found.
Authorities responded to the couple’s apartment in south Harlem after Schlecht’s brother called police when he was unable to contact his sister. A neighbor, who was not named, told ABC 7: ‘I just saw him yesterday, I talk to him everyday, I mess around in the front all the time and I see them coming back and forth from school.’
