Judge orders mistrial in case against Tarloff

MANHATTAN — A judge declared a mistrial in the prosecution of David Tarloff, a former Corona man charged with slashing Dr. Kathryn Faughey, a Manhattan psychoanalyst originally from Sunnyside, 15 times with a meat cleaver in her office on the Upper East Side in 2008, according to a report in the New York Post.

The report stated that nine of the 12 jurors assigned to the case believed Tarloff was not responsible, by reason of insanity, for bludgeoning and stabbing the 56-year-old psychologist to death.

Tarloff’s insanity defense will now be presented to a new jury, a process that will begin at his next court date, May 21.
