Times Square Subway Slay Suspect Naeem Davis Charged With Murder
The homeless thug who police say pushed a Queens man in front of a subway train on Monday has officially been charged with murder in the gruesome death, authorities said this afternoon.
Naeem Davis, 30, confessed yesterday that he and the victim, 58-year-old Ki Suk Han, had been arguing on their way into the Times Square Q Train subway stop on Monday afternoon. After the argument escalated, Davis pushed Han onto the tracks as a train was barreling into the station.
The train crushed Han to death.
Davis watched as the train hit Han, and reportedly told authorities that he "heard his torso snap."
There are reports that Han -- who had an empty bottle of vodka on him at the time -- was drunk at the time of the incident, and Davis claims he repeatedly told the Queens father to leave him alone. When Han continued to harass him, Davis claims, he pushed him onto the tracks.
In all, Davis has been charged with second-degree attempted murder and second-degree murder with depraved indifference to human life.
