New York City Police said Saturday that they had in custody the woman suspected of fatally pushing a man in front of a subway train. The 31-year-old woman has been identified as Erica Menendez of the Bronx. Menendez reportedly made statements incriminating herself while being questioned by police, and is being charged with murder as a hate crime, after telling police she wanted to hurt Muslims. Meanwhile, transit officials are reportedly considering installing sliding doors between tracks and the platforms of major subway stations, reported the MTA's executive director on Friday.
