The victim and Dominguez lived in Miami and were at the Hialeah apartment visiting Fonseca’s mother, who was not home when her daughter was fatally wounded, Zogby said.
Dominguez had a string of arrests last year on charges ranging from robbery, resisting arrest, battery on the elderly and trespassing after warnings.
