-- TORONTO -- A six-year-old girl watched helplessly from her carseat as her mom allegedly lunged forward from the backseat with a "large" kitchen knife and butchered her dad as he drove along a residential street near High Park over the weekend, Toronto Police said Monday.This woman just happens to travel with a large kitchen knife? What's up with that?
The victim, Ludlow Gillespie, 25, was driving north on Windermere Ave., north of Lakeshore Blvd., around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.His common-law wife of seven years, Melissa Lewis, 24, was sitting in the back seat behind the driver.And Grampa just disappears into the wind with the little girl.
The couple's daughter was in the back seat beside her mother and the woman's father was in the front passenger seat.
The victim and deceased had "a history of domestic violence" and both are known to police.
Chalk up another one for Toronto's "code of silence".
UPDATE: Not just a pretty face
The 25-year-old aspiring Toronto rapper known as Mecca was stabbed in the neck allegedly by his common-law wife as they drove through a quiet west end neighbourhood Saturday afternoon.And it looks like Grampy is still on the lam.
