A 22-year-old woman is in police custody Saturday after a domestic dispute turned deadly in East Lubbock early Saturday morning. Police say Latrinda Allen stabbed her 40-year-old boyfriend, Jesse Ray Conley Jr. in the neck. The incident happened around 3:30am near 25th Street and Avenue L.
"All I know is that I woke up to screaming and hollering and I ran out there and I didn't know the suspect had stabbed him. I thought someone else had did it. He was laying right there, an I ran in and I called 911," Conley's neighbor, Michael McKenzie said.
McKenzie said he was shocked to know who the suspect was since Conley and Allen didn't have a violent relationship.
"He was a father and a brother, an uncle, a grandfather. I mean it shouldn't have happened to him like that. It's sad," McKenzie said.
Conley was taken to UMC. Allen was taken into custody after she went to the police department shortly after the incident. She was booked in the Lubbock County Jai, and will go before a judge Sunday.
Homicide detectives continue to investigate this incident.
