NEW YORK (AP) — A former home health aide charged with shoving a woman in front of an oncoming subway train under New York’s Times Square insists she’s not guilty of murder.
Prosecutors say Melanie Liverpool admitted to the deadly push. But when Liverpool heard that at her arraignment Tuesday, she said she “didn’t admit” anything.
The other woman was crushed to death around 1 p.m. Monday. Authorities say witnesses flagged down officers on the platform, and Liverpool was apprehended within minutes.
“The people that were on that platform did exactly what we wanted them to do. If they saw something, they said something. And they saw this woman, push another woman and they flagged down two police officers that were standing on the platform. It’s a horrible incident and your heart goes out to this family and this victim and also to the other people who were on that platform,” William Aubry/ NYPD Chief of Manhattan South Detectives told CNN.
Subway deaths from pushes are not common, but there have been a few in the past few years.
