Police say a man stabbed a woman to death and then stabbed himself in the lung last week in Plano.
Police 50-year-old Jose Ynes Oliba-Cabrera at the scene after witnesses said they saw him stabbing a woman in the intersection of Parker and Coit roads around 10:30 p.m. May 29.
According to the arrest-warrant affidavit, witnesses saw a gray Ford Fusion stop in the middle of Parker Road and a woman run out of the car.
The woman, identified as 48-year-old Ludivina Frias, was Oliba-Cabrera’s girlfriend, Officer David Tilley said.
Oliba-Cabrera reportedly followed Frias out of the car with a knife. Police say he straddled her on the side of the road and repeatedly stabbed her as she screamed, despite a witness calling for him to stop.
When police arrived, they found Oliba-Cabrera over Frias’ body with a knife sticking out of his chest. Frias had been stabbed eight times in the chest and stomach, police said.
On the ride to the hospital, an officer said, Oliba-Cabrera regained consciousness, saying “mi amor” — “my love” — multiple times before slipping back into unconsciousness.
After receiving treatment for a punctured lung, Oliba-Cabrera is continuing to recover in the Collin County Jail’s infirmary.
He faces a charge of murder, with bail set at $1 million.
