NEW YORK (AP) — A 31-year-old woman has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of her husband in the Bronx.

Police responding to a 911 call shortly after 6:30 a.m. Sunday found Nelson Mejia stabbed in the chest inside an apartment on Shakespeare Avenue.

The 32-year-old victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His wife, Yanny Mejia, was arrested later Sunday on charges of murder, manslaughter, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

It wasn’t clear if she had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
