Woman killed in subway shove at Times Square

By JENNIFER PELTZ and CAROLYN THOMPSON

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a woman was pushed to her death in front of a subway train by a homeless man at New York’s Times Square station. Authorities say 61-year-old Martial Simon fled but later turned himself in and has been charged with murder. They say 40-year-old New York resident Michelle Alyssa Go was waiting for a southbound R train Saturday morning when she was shoved. A second woman told police the man had approached her minutes earlier and she feared he would push her onto the tracks. The killing came a little more than a week after the mayor and governor announced plans to boost subway policing and outreach to homeless people.
