CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Castle Rock say a woman who was trying to avoid a domestic violence situation wound up dead in an apparent stabbing Saturday morning, and the possible murderer may have unsuccessfully attempted suicide.
The crime happened just before 5 a.m. in the Founders Village neighborhood at a home at 64 South Amherst Street.
After police arrived at the home on a call about an intruder they found the woman dead from what appears to have been a stab wound. A 44-year-old man who was apparently involved in the situation was hurt, possibly by attempting suicide, and was described as being in critical condition at the hospital afterwards.
The woman was 36 and has five children. Police say she was staying at the Castle Rock home where the violence happened with her mother and brother and was trying to “escape a domestic situation.”
