A woman was taken into custody after police found a Richmond Hill man stabbed to death in his home Tuesday night, the NYPD said.

According to police, authorities found 55-year-old Lee Burrison face up on his living room floor bleeding from his chest around 10:44 p.m. after receiving a call about a man stabbed at a home near 87th Avenue and 112th Street. Burrison was pronounced dead soon after arriving at Jamaica Hospital, authorities said.

A woman identified as Burrison’s girlfriend was taken in from the scene for questioning, the NYPD said.

Officers were still inside the home Wednesday afternoon and said the investigation was ongoing.
