A Connecticut orthodontist has been indicted on attempted-murder charges in the love-triangle stabbing of her ex-fiancee’s new girlfriend, the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office said.
Alika Crew, 42, who works out of a high-end Stamford dental practice, was arraigned Wednesday on the eight-count indictment, which also charges her with five counts of felony assault and a felony count of first-degree unlawful imprisonment.
Crew is accused of hiding in the back of her romantic rival’s SUV in New Rochelle on July 28 and lunging at the 30-year-old victim with a razor, the DA said in a release.
The victim ran from the vehicle, but Crew chased her down and slashed the woman in the neck and hand, prosecutors allege.
When cops got to the scene, Crew pretended to be a good Samaritan who was aiding the victim, police said.
But the victim told cops that Crew was her attacker, not her savior.
Crew was charged with attempted murder the following day and released on bail.
In court Wednesday, she pleaded not guilty to the indictment, lohud.com reported.
Westchester County Court Judge David Zuckerman allowed Crew to remain free on $200,000 bail pending a return court appearance Nov. 2.
