A 37-year-old woman has been arrested after allegedly stabbing her
boyfriend to death in Richmond's Point Richmond neighborhood early this
morning, a police spokeswoman said.
The woman, whose name is not yet being released, called 911 around
4:30 a.m. to report an unresponsive man inside a home in the 500 block of
Tewksbury Avenue, where emergency responders found the 36-year-old victim,
Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.
Paramedics noticed that the man had a stab wound to his abdomen
and called police, Abetkov said.
Medical personnel performed CPR on the victim but he succumbed to
his injuries at the scene.
The 37-year-old woman who called 911 was questioned by
investigators and later arrested on suspicion of the killing, Abetkov said.
Police determined the woman was the victim's girlfriend and that
the stabbing may have stemmed from some sort of domestic dispute fueled by
alcohol, according to Abetkov.
The victim's name is not being released until his family members
are notified of his death, she said.
