CHESHIRE, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Connecticut woman stabbed multiple times in a domestic attack has died.

WVIT-TV reports that Monica Dominguez, of Cheshire, died after suffering as many as 30 stab wounds Wednesday. She had been in critical condition at a hospital following the incident.

Dominguez’s spouse, Emmanuel Dominguez-VillaGomez, has already been charged with first-degree assault, risk of injury, reckless endangerment, and unlawful restraint. He appeared in court Friday and remains in custody.

Authorities say additional charges are possible. It couldn’t be immediately determined if Dominguez-VillaGomez has a lawyer.

Police say Dominguez and Dominguez-VillaGomez both sustained knife injuries during the Wednesday night incident and were taken to separate hospitals. They say Dominguez’s two young children were inside the home at the time and the eldest one had called 911.
