A wife stabbed her 43-year-old husband in Waterbury, police said.
Vamir Keco died from being stabbed in the stomach on East Main Street apartments, according to police.
The man's wife Anila Keco, 34, was originally charged with first-degree assault but Deputy Chief Fred Spagnolo said police will be upgrading this charge.
"I didn't ever think it was ever going to be this bad," Linda Keane, who lives across the street, said. "I saw the cop bring this little woman out and putting her in the back seat."
The couple have two children that are now in the care of Connecticut's Department of Children and Families. Police said the children were not home during the time of the attack.
"I hope that someone in the family can come and take care of them," Keane said. "So that Christmas isn't ruined because now they don't have a mother or a father.
Keco will appear in court on Dec. 23 for the updated charges.
It is not clear if she has an attorney.
