A Bronx man faces 24 years in prison after he allegedly stabbed a woman to death and wounded another in separate incidents within six hours of each other in the Bronx last November.

On Monday, Baron George, 38, of Kingsland Avenue pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and first-degree assault.

The defendant pleaded guilty today to two atrocious crimes,” said District Attorney Darcel Clark. “The defendant used a butcher knife to stab a woman on a street, causing serious injuries, and six hours later he wielded that knife to ferociously stab another woman multiple times, causing her death.”

According to the investigation, at approximately 3:40 a.m. on Nov. 22, 2020, at Bullard Avenue and East 236th Street, the defendant and the victim were in his car when he grabbed the victim’s head and forced it towards his pelvic area.

After she refused to perform a sexual act on him, George stabbed her multiple times in the back and arm with a butcher knife, causing serious physical injury.

Then, at approximately 9:37 a.m. inside of a motel at 2291 New England Thruway, he fatally stabbed Brizjel Kemp, 38, with a butcher knife multiple times.

George fled to New Jersey, where he was arrested for allegedly stabbing a woman in Galloway. The victim in that incident survived. He was subsequently charged on Dec. 5, 2020 for the crimes that occurred in the Bronx.

His sentencing is scheduled for June 28. George faces combined 24 1/2 years in prison, and five years’ post-release supervision.
