A transgender Instagram model from Brooklyn allegedly murdered her father and stabbed her little sister over a dispute about a laptop, Fox News reported. 

Nikki Secondino, 22, who was born Nicholas Secondino is accused of killing her father, Carlo Secondino, 61, and nearly fatally wounding her 19-year-old sister Liana on Dec. 29. The family is said to have a history of violence against one another, the Post reported. 

According to WNBC, Secondino told investigators that she came out of her bedroom around 5:20 a.m. and when she saw her father sleeping on the couch she took a hammer and bashed it in his head. She then allegedly admitted to

“grabbing my favorite German steel knife and stabbed the s— out of him,”

reports state. 

Hearing the loud noise coming from the living room, the sister stepped in, attempting to stop Secondino, and was stabbed in the back, head, and stomach. Though brutally injured, the teen was described as in stable condition. 

According to court documents obtained by NY Daily News, Nikki initially told authorities that her family was the victim of a home invasion.

“They took my f—ing family. Two men broke into the kitchen. They left through the window in the kitchen. They stabbed my father and sister. They tied me up. They tried to rape me,”

she said according to the court filings.

Secondino was arrested and indicted in Brooklyn Supreme Court on Monday on a slew of charges including murder and attempted murder.
