WHITE PLAINS – A New York City woman pled guilty in Westchester County Court to murder in the 2018 stabbing death of a co-worker in an Irvington restaurant.

Rosa Ramirez, 29, faces a sentence of 17 years to life in state prison when she is back in court in April.

It was back on April 10, 2018, Ramirez was in the River City Grille on Broadway in Irvington where she worked as a dishwasher in the kitchen. Just after 11 a.m., prosecutors allege Ramirez attacked the prep cook, 38-year-old Bonifacio Rodriguez of Yonkers, with a kitchen knife. Rodriguez tried to protect himself but was stabbed several times. Another employee in the kitchen attempted to intervene, but was also threatened but not injured.

Irvington Police responded to the scene and the victim was taken to Westchester Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Ramirez had only worked at the restaurant for a few days.

She was apprehended a short time later near the restaurant.
