EL PASO, Texas (AP) - El Paso authorities say a woman has been fatally stabbed more than a dozen times by a man who shot an officer before killing himself.

The El Paso Times reports (https://bit.ly/1D1RRkG ) 61-year-old Cecilia Diaz’s autopsy report from the El Paso County medical examiner’s office shows she died from multiple sharp force injuries. She was stabbed by an unidentified weapon in the neck, face, chest and upper extremities in an El Paso home on Oct. 20.

El Paso police say 30-year-old Frank Aparicio killed Diaz and on Oct. 21 shot Officer Mike Garcia as he responded to an unrelated traffic stop. Police found Aparicio dead of an apparent self-inflected gunshot wound later that day.

Police say the attack on the officer appeared to be random. Garcia was treated and released from the hospital.
