Seven-Year-Old Girl Survives Attempted Murder-Suicide

Police say Ava Sangavaram suffered several stab wounds Thursday when her mother, podiatrist Victoria Vovchik, tuned on her at their upscale New City home.

They say Vovchik, 45, then stabbed herself to death.

Police aren’t saying whether a motive has been detected. They say no note was found.

Police say the victims were discovered by Ava’s father, Kristappa Sangavaram. He is a doctor from New Jersey. The school had alerted him that Ava was absent.

CBS New York reports that police say the father is not considered a suspect in the incident.

Police are not aware of any previous domestic or mental health issues, the station says. The incident remains under investigation.
