Police arrested a Brooklyn man who allegedly robbed and murdered an Elmhurst woman at Kissena Park in October.

Updated 3:23 p.m.

Detectives cuffed a Brooklyn man on Monday accused of robbing and slashing to death an Elmhurst woman in Flushing’s Kissena Park.

Christopher Sobers, 25, was indicted on first-degree robbery, second-degree murder and other charges in the October death of Qing Qing Kiemde, 28, of 45th Avenue in Elmhurst, who worked at a nearby bakery.

According to prosecutors, Sobers used a sharp cutting instrument to stab and slash Kiemde multiple times in her neck and stomach on or about Oct. 10. In the process, he reportedly stole the victim’s cell phone.

A homeless man discovered Kiemde’s body at 2:52 p.m. inside the park off the intersection of Colden Street and Laburnum Avenue. Officers from the 109th Precinct responded to the scene along with EMS units, which pronounced the victim dead.

“The crime scene in this case was horrific,” Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said in a statement Tuesday. “The victim was brutally killed and her bloody body mutilated and disemboweled.”

During his arraignment hearing Tuesday, Sobers was ordered held without bail on the charges and ordered to return to court on Jan. 29, 2016. He faces up to 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
