Woman Was Killed After Being Shoved Onto The New York Subway Tracks

According to reports, it's still unclear what prompted her attacker.

It's a nightmare come true for anyone who's ever ridden the subway before.

A 49-year-old woman from Queens was killed after being pushed in front of a train at the Times Square subway station in New York City on Monday. 30-year-old Melanie Liverpool-Turner was taken into custody almost immediately following the incident after multiple witnesses pointed her out. She was later charged with second-degree murder, The New York Times reports.

The incident occurred around 1 p.m.  and though it's unclear if Liverpool-Turner and the unidentified victim knew each other prior to the incident, Reuters reports that they were involved in some type of dispute prior to the attack.

Authorities are still reviewing evidence from nearby security cameras in an attempt to get a better grasp on what happened that afternoon. Police described Liverpool-Turner as "emotionally disturbed," and report that she'd made up a story about pushing a woman onto the tracks just a month prior to her arrest.
