Minneapolis: Stabbed To Death

(h/t KvM)

When a woman stabs a man, then kneels by his side until the cops get there, I'm thinking crime of passion. Whatever the case, Minneapolis murder #47 is on the books: "Minneapolis man stabbed to death".

Police say a north Minneapolis man was murdered early Friday morning near the intersection of 16th and Queen Ave.

Minneapolis police were dispatched to 1529 Queen Ave. N. after they were told a female had driven a car onto the lawn around 2:00 a.m. Friday.

When officers arrived they saw a man lying in the street and a woman kneeling next to him. The male, a 36-year old from Minneapolis, had been stabbed to death.

He was transported to North Memorial via ambulance, where he died a short time later.

Melissa J. Jones, 35, was arrested at the scene in connection with this homicide.
