A Flushing man has been charged with murder for the brutal stabbing death that took place in Corona early Sunday.

Marcos Anzurez, 34, faces 25 years to life in prison for allegedly stabbing 29-year-old Luis Solis Apolonio in the neck, torso and extremities with a knife, the Queens DA announced yesterday.

Apolonio was found after he collapsed on the sidewalk outside of his 103rd Street home shortly after 4 a.m. Anzuerz also injured himself while stabbing Apolonio, the Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said. Both men were taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where Apolonio was pronounced dead.

Anzuerz was arraigned Tuesday and charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession.

Brown called the murder a “senseless act of violence.”

“An evening of socializing turned into a deadly dispute with one man dead and his companion charged with murder,” said Brown. “The defendant in this case is accused of stabbing the victim multiple times, fatally wounding him and in the process injuring himself.”

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
