A Brooklyn woman stabbed to death her boyfriend after an motorcycle argument over riding, prosecutors said Monday.
Octavia Elliot ran into the apartment she shared with Ramel Patterson early Saturday following the spat, locked the door
and donned a pair of rubber gloves before reaching for the serrated knife, assistant district attorney Wilfredo Cotto told a judge.
“The defendant and complainant were having an argument about the defendant not wanting to ride his motorcycle,” Cotto said.
The 33-year-old then sliced Patterson in the neck, according to court papers. She was discovered by police at the bloody scene
talking to herself. The two had been dating for eight months, Cotto said.
One of Elliot’s sisters, who declined to give her name, said the alleged murder “doesn’t make [Eliiot] a bad person.”
“I’m still trying to wrap my head around it,” the stunned woman said, trying to hold back tears.
“My sister’s life is over,” another sister openly sobbed. “She’s not a violent person — she’s not evil.”
Elliot was held without bail, looking dazed as she was led back into the pens after being arraigned on charges of second-degree
murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Patterson’s family was not in court. His grandmother, Hester Gorman, noted his passion for motorcycles Sunday.
“Only thing he did was just love them motorcycles,” she told The Post.
Elliot, who has a history of violence — including stabbing other romantic partners – – will return to court July 28.
