Man accused of ‘mutilating’ stranger in fatal NYC stabbing back on streets thanks to judge

A man accused of stabbing a stranger to death during a fight outside the Port Authority subway station last week is back on the streets after a Manhattan judge set a paltry $100,000 bail in the murder case, over the objections of prosecutors, The Post has learned.

Jesus Ramirez, 28, was freed from Rikers Island Saturday after having to float just 10 percent of a $100,000 partially secured bond for the caught-on-camera slaying of 49-year-old Guarionex Torres in Hell’s Kitchen, records show.

Ramirez was arraigned before Acting Supreme Court Justice Suzanne Adams earlier that day on charges of second-degree murder and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon in Torres’ death.

Officers had found Ramirez near the scene on Friday, shirtless and covered in his alleged victim’s blood, according to the criminal complaint against him and law enforcement sources.
