On Thursday, January 26, 2023, police arrested transgender Instagram model Nikki Secondino for killing her father and critically injuring her sister. On December 29, 2022, their home in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, was the scene of a bloody rampage following an argument over a laptop, according to Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez. According to him, his office will aggressively prosecute the case and seek justice for the victims. The 22-year-old model has been charged with murder and attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree.

A false narrative Nikki provided to responding officers claimed that two assailants attacked her family, killed her father and sister, and sexually assaulted her. In addition to the absence of a safe in the home and the lack of serious injuries on Nikki, police suspect that she fabricated the story to avoid responsibility. It was claimed that Nikki Secondino repeatedly slashed her father, Carlo Secondino, 61, with a hammer while he was sleeping on the couch, before stabbing him repeatedly with a kitchen knife. The moment Liana heard a disturbance in the living room, she intervened but was also stabbed in the face, body, and hands. As a result of her arrest, Nikki Secondino confessed that she wanted her family dead.

The Instagram model, who lives in Brooklyn, fatally stabbed her father and critically wounded her younger sister over a laptop, authorities said. A murder indictment was issued against transgender suspect Nikki Secondino and she was returned to Rikers Island, where she has been held without bail since the Dec. 29 attack in her family’s Bensonhurst home. The six-count indictment unsealed in court also charged Secondino with assault and weapons possession. In a statement, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said the defendant fatally stabbed her younger sister after arguing over a laptop, then killed her own father. It is my office’s duty to vigorously prosecute this horrific case and ensure that justice is served to the victims. During the bloody outburst, Secondino is accused of killing her father, Carlo, 61, and seriously injuring her sister, Liana, 19. The suspect, in this case, confessed chillingly to police after being arrested by Brooklyn detectives, according to a previous criminal complaint. My father was sleeping on the couch when I came out of my bedroom, and I smashed his head in with [a] hammer,” she said. Using my favourite German steel knife, I stabbed the s–t out of him,” she claimed. I stabbed my sister in the back, head, and stomach after she came out of her bedroom and tried to stop me.

It was my intention to kill them. According to police, Secondino originally told cops two intruders attacked her father and sister in the family home, but later changed her story. According to the complaint, Liana Secondino told police when first responders arrived that her sister stabbed her. “Have you seen my father? Previously, there had been unrest in the family, according to police sources. Nikki sought a temporary order of protection against her dad and sister in late July after two incidents of threats and violence in the family earlier that month. She claimed her sister Liana threatened to kill her and her dad was in “the mob.” Liana was charged with assault and criminal mischief on July 15 after Nikki called the police about her sister allegedly cutting her hand and tearing down window blinds. Her father is not believed to be connected to the Mafia, according to sources who confirmed the judge signed off on the order. According to Nikki, during a 2020 interview on the “United We Rant” podcast, she was born Nicholas Secondino and transitioned into a woman in her late teens. During the interview, she said her father had always been supportive and accepting of her transition after working as a fashion model for several years.
