A Richmond Hill man was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife, who was found stabbed to death in the family's 117th Street home on Thursday afternoon.
Twenty-nine-year-old Samantha Seelall was found by officers responding to a 911 call around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday at 89-11 117 St. in Richmond Hill. She had been stabbed multiple times in the chest and her body had been stuffed under a bed with a plastic bag wrapped over her head. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Seelall's husband, 39-year-old Ganeesh Seelall, was arrested and charged with murder, aggravated criminal contempt, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of a weapon.
