Deranged Dad Tries Killing His Wife In Front Of Their Kids

Police said in court Wednesday that a Queens man who allegedly ran down his estranged wife with an SUV and then stabbed her called the police himself. He then told the dispatcher “I think I killed my wife.”

Upon arrival on Parsons Boulevard early Tuesday, Stephen Giraldo, 36, allegedly told officers, “I hit my wife- arrest me.”

During his first court appearance, he told the judge that the couple’s three children were in the car during the incident. Among the children in the car was the couple’s oldest kid, who was sitting in the front seat.

Stephen Giraldo ordered the kids to keep their seatbelts on moments before he struck his wife. He had parked across the street and called their mother, Sophia Giraldo, 41, to come down.

Upon approaching his car, the driver accelerated and hit her so hard that she flew over the fence. The white Ford Explorer struck a wrought-iron fence that fell onto its driver’s side.

According to Assistant District Attorney Audra Beerman, the deranged father climbed over his son, crawled out the passenger window, walked over to Sophia, and stabbed her twice underneath the right breast.

The knife was found later by police on the side of the house where he abandoned it.

After the cops arrived, he is alleged to have confessed to the violent attack.

Prosecutors said Sophia, a life coach and domestic abuse survivor, remains in critical condition. Among her injuries were severe neurological damage, broken bones in her leg, and a stab wound that punctured her liver.

Giraldo has been charged with attempted murder, assault, weapons possession, reckless endangerment, and endangering the welfare of a child. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
