A 35-year-old woman who police suspect was stabbed by her husband at an east-side home Saturday evening later died.

Police were called to the home in the 500 block of North Evelyn Avenue, near North Camino Seco and East Broadway, around 6:15 p.m. Saturday. They found Marcela Julie Ann Slatin, with stab wounds, Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson police spokeswoman, said in a news release.

The woman’s husband, Art Slatin, was also inside the home, and three of their children were outside the house in a vehicle, the release said.

Slatin was taken to a hospital where she died.

Detectives determined the couple fought inside the house, which led to the husband’s stabbing the woman, the release said.

Art Slatin was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and was booked into the Pima County jail.
