CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - A homicide investigation is underway after a woman was stabbed to death following a domestic dispute early Tuesday morning in an east Charlotte neighborhood, police said.
The woman has been identified as Aliyah Sakinah Terry, 35, police said. Her boyfriend, Isaih Andrew Henderson III, 32, is wanted for her murder.
The attack happened just before 2 a.m. Tuesday, July 2 in the 10300 block of Gold Pan Road.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police tell FOX 46 they had been called out to the home about four hours prior around 10 p.m. regarding a domestic dispute between Terry and her live-in boyfriend, Henderson. Terry had reportedly assured officers 'everything was fine.' Her boyfriend had left the home at that time.
Officers determined that no crime occurred during the first 911 call, CMPD said.
Just hours later, officers were called back to the home and Terry was found inside with apparent stab wounds. She was rushed to the hospital where she tragically passed away.
Detectives are asking for the community's help in locating Henderson. A warrant for murder has been issued for his arrest. CMPD has not given the media a description of the boyfriend at this time.
This murder marks the 59th homicide this year. In 2018, the total number of homicides were 59.
