On Tuesday, Miami-Dade oolice caught up with him. He was arrested and jailed on multiple felony charges. Here’s what happened, police say:
On Sept. 24, Borda, 33, entered his girlfriend’s home in Kendall and stabbed her several times in her sleep. The girlfriend, who police did not identify, was taken to a hospital for treatment.
