Suspect in murder of Christina Lee says too little evidence for his conviction: ‘I’m not on camera touching her’
- In an interview from Rikers Island, the 25-year-old suspect charged with the murder of Christina Yuna Lee, 35, said he cannot be jailed because there is no video of him killing Lee.
- On Feb. 13, Lee was followed home by Assamad Nash and stabbed to death over 40 times in her Chinatown apartment.
- Nash was previously caught on surveillance video following Lee into her building and was found hiding under a bed at the murder scene.
- “They only got me on camera going into the building, that’s it,” he said, according to the New York Post. “They ain’t got no camera showing me killing that lady.”
- Nash claimed that Lee had invited him over for a drink, but he was “too high” to remember anything about her death.
- Nash also claimed to have “mental problems” but did not identify any specific diagnosis. He said he was “trying to get into a mental health program at the hospital” to escape the charges against him.
