A Sunnyside man got into a domestic dispute with his wife this morning, killed her and then jumped off the 40th Street subway platform to his death, according to police.
The dispute, which occurred at 8:08 am at 45-41 39th Place, resulted in Amis Cale, 41, stabbing his wife Jennifer Cale, 39, several times. The couple’s 19-year-old daughter found her mother’s body — soaked in blood with her throat cut — in the family’s kitchen, police said.
Jennifer was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and was announced dead on arrival.
The police searched for Amis, canvassing the area. He took off on foot and then went up onto the No. 7 train subway platform at about 9:23 am. He walked to the 41st Street end of the platform and then jumped. One witness said he heard a giant “thud” following his fall– a fall estimated to be about 50 feet.
Amis, too, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and was dead on arrival.
