An Oceanside woman has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her 79-year-old mother to death following an argument on Monday afternoon, Nassau County police said.

Officers responded to a report of an assault at a Terrell Avenue home, where they found the victim, Irma Grossman, with a neck wound at 12:48 p.m., police said. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where she died three hours later.

“There was a scene created by the murder,” Det. Capt. John Azzata, commander of the Homicide Squad, told reporters Tuesday during a news conference at police headquarters. “Obviously something transpired in that home.”

The victim’s 56-year-old daughter, Suzan Grossman-Kerner, who also lives in Oceanside, was charged with second-degree murder. She will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.

Azzata said investigators recovered a kitchen knife that may be the murder weapon. Detectives are continuing the investigation.
