A Queens Village man has been charged with murder for allegedly stabbing his 72-year-old father to death.

Jaimie Walker, 30, was arraigned Saturday night at Queens Criminal Court on murder and weapon possession charges.

Walker, of Hempstead Avenue, allegedly stomped on his father’s head, choked him and then stabbed him several times in the neck last Thursday, according to the charges.

The victim, Loandows Walker, was found dead and covered in blood on the bathroom floor of his apartment by police officers on Thursday morning.

Officers also found the defendant’s 70-year-old mother, his 31-year-old brother and 29-year-old sister-in-law lying unconscious on a mattress inside the apartment. They had no visible signs of injuries, but were all rushed to a hospital. Police said they were all suspected to survive on Thursday.

District Attorney Melinda Katz announced the charges against the younger Walker on Sunday.

“[The defendant] allegedly beat his father before stabbing him to death,” Katz said in a statement.  “This was a brutal, violent killing.”

Walker was also charged with criminal mischief after he destroyed the interview room in the109th police precinct where he was being questioned.

He allegedly repeatedly slammed a table inside the room — breaking its leg — and then smashed the table multiple times against the two-way mirror, causing it to shatter, Katz said.

Walker is set to return to court on Jan. 20. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
