Charges are pending against a woman who allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death during a domestic dispute in East Elmhurst early on Wednesday morning.

According to police, at 1:21 a.m. on July 11, officers from the 115th Precinct responded to a 911 call regarding an assault in progress on the second floor of a home on 93rd Street near Astoria Boulevard.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that a 35-year-old woman got into a verbal dispute with a 43-year-old man, which quickly turned physical. They had been in a relationship.

When police arrived at the scene, they found the 43-year-old man with stab wounds to the abdomen and the 35-year-old female with bruising to the face. A knife believed to have been used in the stabbing was found at the home.

EMS units responded to the location and transported the man and woman to Elmhurst Hospital, where the man was pronounced dead. His identity was withheld pending family notification.

The woman, who was listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries, was taken into custody for further questioning; charges against her have not yet been announced.
