Bernard – who police said also stabbed Shakeena Grant, Shantayah’s 15-year-old cousin – was arrested in Queens Monday.

Tuesday she was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court on charges of assault, harassment and menacing. Bernard was arrested twice in 2008 for grand larceny and possession of a weapon.
