A Flushing man faces serious jail time after admitting to viciously stabbing his estranged girlfriend to death nearly four years ago, prosecutors announced Wednesday.

Naser Alzein, 55, pleaded guilty on March 27 to first-degree manslaughter before Queens Supreme Court. Alzein is due to return to court for sentencing on April 27, where he faces up to 24 years in prison, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said.

According to charges, on Nov. 8, 2014, Alzein’s girlfriend, Josefina Mendoza, 68, was stabbed more than 300 times between 7 and 11:45 p.m. that night. Mendoza had more than 200 wounds to her face alone.

Alzein called 911 to report he had found Mendoza in the apartment already dead. However, Alzein had a cut on his hand and was seen on video surveillance pacing outside the apartment building before going back inside to call the police.

“This was a violent murder scene. The victim had been stabbed more than 300 times — many of the knife wounds to her face,” Brown said. “The defendant called 911 and claimed he found the woman dead in the apartment. As a result of this horrific crime, the defendant will be incarcerated for a very long time.”
