Barber Cuts Wife's Throat in New York Murder-Suicide

A 76-year-old Queens barber slashed his wife's throat with a butcher knife Sunday, then turned the knife on himself as their developmentally disabled son watched in horror, cops said.

The bloody murder-suicide occurred about 7:35 p.m. in the Ozone Park apartment that the killer, Eusebio Salazar, shared with Geraldina Salazar, 51, and their grown son, who was born with Down syndrome.

"My mom! My mom!" cried the son, who ran downstairs to get deli owner Darrio Urquijo, 50.

Urquijo said he found the husband and wife on the floor of their bedroom, a brown-handled knife sticking out of the man's chest.

"I go with the kid and I see the guy on the floor, the wife, too, and he has a knife in his chest," Urquijo said. "There was a lot of blood on his hands."...

Neighbors said Eusebio Salazar suffered a stroke recently and had been depressed.

"They were wonderful people," neighbor Sandra Liciaga said. "They looked happy. That's why I'm so shocked."...
