Texas Mom Allegedly Stabbed Fiancé to Death — Then Tried to Stitch Him Up
Snejana Farberov, New York Post, April 5, 2023
A 25-year-old Texas mom of two fatally stabbed her fiancé — before attempting to stitch up his knife wounds, according to police.
Liliana Cervantes, 25, was arrested Monday on charges she killed 32-year-old Nathan Freeman at the couple’s Houston apartment on March 20.
Officers who responded to the scene in the 16300 block of Camino Real around 8:45 p.m. found Cervantes trying to sew up her mortally injured fiancé, authorities said.
Cervantes’ 4-year-old child from a previous relationship and a 6-month-old daughter she shared with Freeman were present in the apartment at the time of the killing.
In her probable cause appearance Tuesday, it was alleged that Cervantes told police she blacked out during the stabbing.
She came to after having water splashed on her, but then blacked out a second time, a court officer said.
“The next thing she remembers (is) trying to stitch the complainant up and calling 911,” the court heard.
