A South Jamaica home with a history of domestic discord was the site of a bloody murder last week when a woman allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death in the house they shared with two young children, police and neighbors said.

Police said they arrived at 145th Street near 133rd Avenue the morning of Sept. 5 and found 46-year-old Jeffrey Perkins dead with a stab wound in his neck. Anna Adams, whom neighbors identified as Perkins’ girlfriend, was arrested and charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the police.

Neighbors said Perkins moved to the home from Staten Island about six months ago with his girlfriend, her 12-year-old son and the 2-year-old son the couple had together.

Perkins was said to be a loving and attentive father who spent a lot of his time making improvements to the house, such as the pink marble fence he erected around the yard.

It was not long after the family moved in, however, that neighbors noticed Perkins and Adams were getting into frequent arguments.

Several neighbors recalled an incident over the summer when the couple had a party and the cops were called to the house several times throughout the day.

One neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said Adams broke the fence around the home and was screaming and making a scene.

“She was crazy. He threw her out at one point. The mom was screaming out in front of the house,” said the neighbor, who described Perkins as a “great father.”
