Saratoga County woman who killed relative stabbed to death in NYC


NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police say a Saratoga County woman who went to prison for killing her 91-year-old great-grandmother has been stabbed to death by her boyfriend.
Katherine Seeber was released from state prison in July after serving 12 years for killing her step-great-grandmother, 91-year-old Ruth Witter, in 2000. Police accused Seeber and her then-boyfriend, Jeffrey Hampshire, of strangling Witter during a botched robbery in Albany in February 2000 and then dumping her body near a national park in rural Saratoga County.
Seeber, of Wilton, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. Hampshire was acquitted.
Police say 38-year-old Pedro Sanchez killed the 31-year-old Seeber Tuesday in her Queens apartment.
Sanchez, who police say is homeless, is charged with second-degree murder.
