PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania medical examiner has issued a homicide ruling in the death of a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center internist stabbed during an argument with his daughter, who is facing a homicide charge.

Police and paramedics in Allegheny County were called to a Plum borough home shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday and found 69-year-old Anthony Nicassio stabbed. The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office said Sunday that he died of stab wounds to the chest, and the manner of death was ruled homicide.

Police said the victim and his wife were trying to take 27-year-old Christina Nicassio to a hospital when the stabbing occurred. Police allege that she told investigators that he “had to die.” She is charged with criminal homicide and possessing an instrument of crime.
