MOUNT HOPE -

A woman was arrested after police say she took part in a fatal stabbing of a man in the Bronx.

Michele Aiken, 48, was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of murder, robbery, burglary and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police say Aiken, and another man, Charles Randolph, broke into a Weeks Avenue apartment on May 13, and fatally stabbed 52-year-old William Easter during a burglary.

Williams was found with a stab wound to his chest and later pronounced dead at St. Barnabas Hospital.

Aiken was seen on surveillance video leaving the building on the night of the incident and police say they identified her because of a tattoo of a Scorpio zodiac symbol on her left breast.
