Caitlin Faulkenberry's fiance has been arrested.
The 25-year-old victim was attacked in her Greenville, N.C. apartment.
Calvin Clay Jr., was charged with murder.
A woman stabbed this morning at a Greenville apartment complex has died.
At an afternoon news conference, Greenville police identified the victim as Caitlin Faulkenberry.
The 25-year-old Faulkenberry was stabbed just before 7:00 a.m. at her apartment at Whitebridge Apartments on East Fire Tower Road.
Police say they have in custody the victim's fiance, Calvin Clay Jr., who they say caused multiple accidents after he left the apartment complex.
Greenville police say Clay was charged with an open count of murder when he was released from the hospital.
Deputy Chief Ted Sauls says Faulkenberry was a young woman with a bright future. He said the woman lost her life from someone she knew and trusted.
Faulkenberry graduated from Pitt Community College in May with an associate degree in Paralegal Technology. Friends say she was an intern at the Pitt County Public Defender's Office.
Clay has a significant criminal history dating back to 2005, according to Sauls. The deputy chief said this is the first domestic homicide in Greenville this year.
