Dawn Katzman, 43, and her boyfriend Andrzej Bartman had been together at least since 2002, when they purchased a home together. However, the relationship had recently ended and Dawn Katzman was living in the home alone. The home was up for sale.
Allegedly on Sat. morning at 10:30 am police responded to the address as a result of a 911 call reporting a homicide. Police had to force their way in, and once they entered they found Dawn Katzman in the basement of the home, dead from multiple stab wounds.
Police then received another 911 call, and as a result they found Andrzej Bartman in the neighborhood. Police believe that Bartman stabbed Katzman then fled the home to another home in the neighborhood. Police arrested him as he stepped outside of the home.
Investigators believe that Dawn Katzman was killed sometime between 10:30 am and the 10:52 am phone call to 911.
Andrzej Bartman has been charged with murder and possession of a weapon.
Police say there were no restraining orders between the couple and none had been sought.
Family has said that Andrzej Bartman went to his sister’s and told her what he had done, then went out to turn himself in to police.
Dawn Katzman had reportedly gone to the home on Saturday to pack up her things.
Andrejz Bartman has been indicted in the murder. He has also been charged with weapons offenses and hindering prosecution. He has pleaded not guilty.
