Lawyer: Stabbing Suspect Says She Didn’t Do It

By Arielle Dollinger


The woman arrested over the weekend for allegedly stabbing a man to death is saying she did not do it, her attorney said Wednesday.

In Huntington Station’s second violent death over a one-week period, Suffolk County police have charged Kutima Glover, 33, with manslaughter in the first degree.

Police found a wounded Larry Collins, with whom Glover lived, on the front lawn of his Huntington Station home on Wyman Avenue around 4:25 a.m. on July 5. He was later pronounced dead.

Glover was arrested July 6.

“My client’s position is that she didn’t stab anybody,” said Glover’s attorney, Camille Russell. “I don’t know how he got hurt, but we know that there was an altercation.”

According to Russell, the medical examiner said at the arraignment that the man had three stab wounds: one to his chest and two to his abdomen.

On Saturday, June 28, in a separate incident, police began investigating the fatal stabbing of a man at 1419 New York Ave. in Huntington Station. Police found Luis Ramos-Rodriguez, 38, on the ground behind Melissa Restaurant.
