Police have charged a 27-year-old man who they say had fatally stabbed a grandmother in a frenzied attack on a West Brighton street, then was found cradling her body when cops arrived at the scene.
 
Police identified the suspect as Dantey Moore, 27, of North Burgher Avenue in West Brighton.
The suspect has a lengthy criminal history, mental issues and was a stranger to the victim, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.
 
Moore stabbed Geetha Howie, 63, more than 15 times on Monday shortly after 2 pm in the vicinity of Bement Avenue and Bement Court, just blocks from her home on Bement Avenue, police allege.
 
The victim was returning home from the bank, where she was getting money for an upcoming family wedding she planned to attend in Sri Lanka, according to media reports.
 
Moore also allegedly slashed neighbor Mark Long, 56, who ran to Howie's aid.
 
"He heard the cries and he wasn't sure, he thought it was kids that were hanging out," said Sandra Graydon-Long, Long's wife. "When he came out he saw two people on the ground. And then as he got closer he saw that a man was stabbing a woman."
 
Howie’s family say she had just left the bank when she encountered the alleged killer. One relative believes it was a robbery-gone-wrong.
 
“She loved me, she loved her family,” son-in-law Daniel Fazzina said. “We have a three-year-old daughter who she absolutely loves. It was her granddaughter. They were just inseparable. It’s just a senseless tragedy.”
 
Fazzina tells CBS2 the entire family was in town and about to head to Sri Lanka for Howie’s nephew’s wedding. Instead, they’ll be planning a funeral for the beloved grandmother.
