The son of Rachel Noerdlinger — a former aide to Chirlane de Blasio — was arrested and charged on Monday after he fatally stabbed a 16-year-old in New Jersey.
Khari Noerdlinger is facing charges of first-degree manslaughter, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and hindering apprehension, according to ABC News.
The 19-year-old reportedly stabbed a young man in the femoral artery of his leg during an alleged robbery on Sunday night in the town of Edgewater, the New York Daily News reported.
Noerdlinger was reportedly the victim of an attempted armed robbery by five suspects at about 10:30 p.m. and when confronted, the group of young men got into an argument.
The New Jersey resident then stabbed one of the assailants — who died later at a local hospital.
