The reports note that before Olivia could leave the house after committing murder, her husbands’ home health aide arrived at the house. The aide then contacted the New Rochelle police, who entered the house on their arrival after they heard voices screaming from the washroom.

Olivia’s husband then was immediately taken to the Jacobi hospital, where he went through two surgeries to refix the tendons in his arm.

Because of the incident, the victim lost all the functioning in his hand, according to the reports.
