Zondriette Villanueva and Rene Aviles had a child together. So although they were no longer dating, it likely felt natural to offer him a temporary place to stay when she found out his parents made him move out of their home.

Friday night, apparently Villanueva decided to go out with some friends. And when she returned home late, she got some text messages which Aviles allegedly read. Reportedly Aviles got angry and grabbed a steak knife, headed for Villanueva’s room.

Allegedly, Aviles attempted to sexually assault her. When she struggled, he began stabbing her with the steak knife. Villanueva received about 5 wounds to the chest and one to the arm. Reportedly Aviles then turned the knife on himself.

Both Villanueva and Aviles were transported to the hospital where Villanueva was reported to be in serious but stable condition.

The couple’s baby and Villianueva’s sister was reported to have been in the home at the time of the stabbing, but were not injured.

Jealousy is thought to be the motive.

Sometimes you just can’t be nice.
