Whatcom County woman arrested for murder in stabbing death of boyfriend

FERNDALE, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a 22-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after her boyfriend was found stabbed to death at a home north of Bellingham.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://goo.gl/N57GBJ ) deputies were called to a home east of Ferndale Sunday morning on a report that the man tried to kill himself with a knife.

The Whatcom County Sheriff's Office says deputies found 26-year-old Alberto Manuel Mora-Morales on the living room floor with a stab wound to his neck. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Authorities say Jessica Inda later told them she stabbed Mora-Morales. Soon after, police say she stopped talking and asked for an attorney.

Jessica Inda was arrested Sunday and remained in jail Monday.

Their 5-year-old daughter was taken into custody by state Child Protective Services.
