On November 4, 2009, at around 8:00 a.m., the victim, a 38-year-old woman, had just dropped off one of her children at school.  When she returned to the car, she was surprised by her estranged husband, 43-year-old Miguel Angel Amaya, who was waiting for her inside the car.  

Amaya demanded the victim drive him to his residence in the 12500 block of Telfair Avenue. The victim stopped in front of Amaya's residence.  Amaya asked the victim to reconcile with him, but she refused.  Amaya became angry and repeatedly hit the victim with a brick.  He also took out a knife a stabbed the victim multiple times before cutting her throat.
