Family of Woman Fatally Stabbed in Her Apartment Sues Members of the NYPD, Claiming Negligence in Response to Attack

The family of a woman who was fatally stabbed in her Manhattan apartment last year has filed a lawsuit against members of the New York City Police Department and New York City, claiming delays in police assistance and medical care ultimately led to her death.

Christina Yuna Lee, 35, was found dead in her Chinatown apartment in February 2022 after prosecutors say a man followed her home and stabbed her dozens of times.
