A mother of two who was stabbed as many as 30 times in a brutal domestic attack in Cheshire has died, according to police, and her husband has been arrested and charged with assault.
Police said they responded to a home on Mountain Road in Cheshire on Wednesday night and found Monica Dominguez in a pool of blood on the floor. She was rushed to the hospital and on Sunday, police said Dominguez had died.
Dominguez's husband, 31-year-old Emmanuel Dominguez-VillaGomez, was taken into custody and charged with first-degree assault, risk of injury, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint.

He appeared in court on Friday.
In light of Dominguez's death, police said they are working with the Office of the State's Attorney on additional charges.
“The family is in a lot of pain,” said Diana Montes, a friend. “We need to become her voice. This has to stop. We want full justice for Monica. She didn’t deserve this.”
Court papers say the victim's two children were inside the home at the time of the assault - an 11-year-old boy who called 911 and a girl who is almost 2 years old.
According to the court documents, when police arrived they saw several knives and there was a lot of blood. The documents go on to say that the woman had several cuts to her throat, but she was able to tell paramedics, “he tried to kill me and, “he say, I cheated on him,” referring to VillaGomez.
“I’d like to say that she was an overall beautiful, strong willed and amazing person,” said Heather Beichner, a friend. “And as hard as this is, I am so blessed to have had her in my life.”
