Teen accused of murdering mom in Hell's Kitchen apartment indicted
A teenager accused of beating his mother to death in their Hell's Kitchen apartment last week was indicted by a grand jury Monday night.
Police said 19-year-old Henry Wachtel killed his mother, LaGuardia High School English teacher Karyn Kay, shortly after she called 911 last Tuesday morning saying he was having a seizure. Wachtel has said he doesn't remember the incident.
Wachtel has been charged with murder. He is due back in Supreme Court to be arraigned on May 10.
