GREAT NECK, N.Y. (WCBS 880) -- A Long Island woman is accused of fatally stabbing a house guest after declaring she needed to rid her home of evil, authorities said Tuesday.

Nassau County Police Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick says the victim, who was visiting from England, was stabbed to death Monday afternoon in the living room of 66-year old Faye Doomchin's house on North Road in Great Neck.

"They were talking and the woman made statements that she did not like the woman from England, she claimed she needed to rid the house of evil, she then appeared from the kitchen with a kitchen knife, walked right over to her and stabbed her in the chest," Fitzpatrick said.

Fitzpatrick said the two women along with a male friend had just come back from having lunch.

"There was no incidents at lunch. They picked up cake, came back to the house, started playing the piano. Sometime during this time Faye had this aggressive feeling towards her," Fitzpatrick said.

This was the first time the suspect met the victim.

Police say alcohol was not involved.

Doomchin has been charged with second-degree murder.

In the late 1990's Doomchin was convicted of assault with a knife.
