Law enforcement in Paterson NJ recently arrested a woman accused of murdering a relative of her ex-boyfriend.

The suspect is a 27-year-old woman who lives in Paterson, New Jersey. She allegedly used a large kitchen knife to fatally stab a 31-year-old Paterson NJ man outside her home on North 7th Street in Paterson.

According to law enforcement, the suspect and the victim got involved in a heated verbal altercation that also involved the suspect’s boyfriend. The boyfriend, a 40-year-old Paterson NJ resident, and the victim reportedly stepped outside the residence and onto the front porch. That’s when the suspect allegedly stabbed the victim.

Afterwards, the victim was taken to nearby St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for urgent medical treatment. Tragically, doctors could not save the victim; he was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The suspect now faces numerous criminal charges, including charges for aggravated manslaughter and criminal weapons offenses.

The suspect may also be subject to domestic violence charges because the argument that led to the homicide involved someone with whom the suspect was involved in a dating relationship.
