Hialeah mother stabbed in front of daughters

 

A Hialeah woman was fatally stabbed Monday morning as her daughters watched, police said.

Yulia Torres, 30, was pronounced dead at an area hospital. The prime suspect is her estranged husband, who was also taken to the hospital. It’s unclear how he was injured.

Neighbors say they heard the couple fighting before the attack. Relatives say the couple has a history of domestic problems.

The suspect, Hialeah police say, stabbed Torres as their daughters were getting ready for school.

The two girls have been turned over to the Department of Children & Families, who will help determine who will care for them.
