Other than the police tape, things are back to normal on Bob O Link Lane today in Fort Salonga where a woman was arrested in connection with the stabbing death of her 54-year-old husband during a domestic dispute on Friday.

Suffolk police, who received a 911 call Friday morning that a man had been stabbed at the residence, said 48-year-old Kathleen Prisco’s husband, Ralph Prisco, was found with more than a dozen stab wounds. He was rushed to Stony Brook University Medical Center by helicopter where he was pronounced dead at 9:31 a.m.


Kathleen Prisco pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder Saturday morning and has been put on 24-hour suicide watch. The bail hearing has been postponed until Monday.
