An argument between a husband and wife ended when he stabbed her to death on the porch of their east side home Thursday night.
The couple's three children were at home and might have witnessed the incident. Alicia Saldana Gonzalez, 36, was stabbed multiple times by Jesus Gonzalez, 40, police say.
The incident happened about 11 p.m. last night in the 12900 block of Orleans, and alcohol is suspected to have played a part.
The husband has been taken into custody and charged with murder.
