According to a criminal complaint, police say the man, Habibi Gessese Tesema, was stabbed by his 40-year-old wife, Amreya Rahmeto Shefa, while their two children, ages 2 and 3, were in the house. Officers arrived to the Richfield residence after 5 a.m. on Sunday, after receiving a report of an assault with a knife in progress.

Police were speaking with witnesses who were inside the house at the time of the assault when a woman, later identified as Shefa, ran out of the home with blood on her hands and arms.

Police say she was yelling hysterically in another language, referencing her husband and her kids. Officers entered the home, saw blood in the kitchen and on the door, looked down the hallway and saw a young 2-year-old boy peeking out of a room.

Authorities were able to get both kids out of the home before searching for the husband. Officers heard water running in a bathroom and kicked the door in. The victim, identified as Tesema, was located in the tub, covered in blood with multiple cuts on his body. Officers noticed there were also two knives in the tub with him. Paramedics worked to save Tesema but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Read more from CBS Minnesota »
