BROWNSVILLE - Police say they have arrested the 20-year-old son of Churminline Ward, 47, in connection with her stabbing death in her Legion Street apartment in Brownsville last night.

Ward's boyfriend says the son had recently been at Kings County Hospital for the past three weeks undergoing psychiatric evaluation, but was released last week.

Officials say Ward's grandchildren, ages 5 and 1, were also inside the apartment, but were not hurt.
