The NEW YORK Police Department says the personal assistant of "Realtor to the Stars" LINDA STEIN has been arrested in her brutal slaying.
NYPD spokesman PAUL BROWNE says charges are pending against the assistant, NATAVIA LOWERY of BROOKLYN. BROWNE says the suspect has "made statements implicating herself" in the killing.
STEIN, who was bludgeoned in her $3 million FIFTH AVENUE apartment, was a pioneer in NEW YORK's punk music scene. She was the ex-wife of SEYMOUR STEIN, the former President of SIRE RECORDS, which was the launching pad for the RAMONES, TALKING HEADS and MADONNA.
She co-managed the RAMONES during the band's heyday and is credited with bringing the group to ENGLAND.
