MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – Police are investigating after a man fatally stabbed his wife in northwest Miami-Dade on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
It happened around 2:00 p.m. at a house near the 2000 block of Northwest 52nd Street.

Rodriguez said that upon arrival, units discovered an adult woman dead at the scene.
Miami-Dade police officers were at the scene speaking to neighbors in the area.
