Dubuque man charged in girlfriend’s stabbing death
DUBUQUE (AP) — A Dubuque woman has been stabbed to death, and her boyfriend has been charged.
Samantha Link, 21, was killed in her apartment early Friday morning. Police say they found her around 2:20 a.m. after receiving a report of a stabbing.
Police say 25-year-old Fontae Buelow met officers at the door in a hysterical state. Officers say Buelow told them he and Link had been arguing when Link became violent, assaulted him, then stabbed herself in the stomach with a butcher knife, which was found at the scene.
But police say Link had been stabbed twice in the chest and had bruises on her nose and forehead.
Buelow has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held on a $1 million cash-only bond.
