Queens man charged with murdering father of 3 cops

The Associated Press

QUEENS, N.Y.- Prosecutors charged a 28-year-old Queens man with murder and weapons possession in the stabbing death of a 78-year-old father of three city police officers.

Police said Carmine Randazzo was stabbed numerous times early yesterday afternoon on Parsons Boulevard. He was pronounced dead at Mary Immaculate Hospital.

William Scott was taken into custody about a block away from the stabbing. He was also charged in an August 12 assault of 48-year-old Lawrence Nelson on a street corner in Queens.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown called the attack vicious, random and unprovoked.

Prosecutors said Scott is in custody Sunday, awaiting arraignment on Monday.
