ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Albuquerque police are investigating a second homicide in less than 24 hours.
Police said they were called to the Chelsea Village apartments, near Louisiana and Montgomery, around 7 p.m. in response to a domestic dispute.
When they arrived, they found two individuals with stab wounds—51-year-old Shaun McBurnie and 51-year-old Michelle Darrell.
Neighbors at the complex said McBurnie exit the apartments with a knife and heard Darrell scream for help. One neighbor rendered aid to Darrell while another followed McBurnie to a nearby gas station.
McBurnie stabbed himself prior to APD arriving.
Darrell was transported to the hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. McBurnie was also hospitalized then later arrested and charged with an open count of murder and tampering with evidence.
