NEW YORK (AP) - A 26-year-old woman has been charged in a Harlem double stabbing that left a woman dead and her daughter wounded.

Authorities say Ashanti Daniels was charged Tuesday with murder, attempted murder and a weapons offense in the slaying of 38-year-old Michelle Kenny. Officers responding to an assault inside a Lenox Avenue apartment found both women stabbed in their torsos around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Kenny later died at a hospital.

The Daily News reports (https://nydn.us/29laKq3 ) police said Kenny died while trying to protect her daughter from Daniels.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tyson Martin and 27-year-old James Martin have also been charged with assault in the case. Martin also faces a charge of tampering with physical evidence.

It’s not immediately clear if the suspects have attorneys who could comment on the charges.
