    Police say a Rhode Island woman has been found dead in her Providence home and her boyfriend is charged in the killing.

    Police say 34-year-old Louis Matta stabbed 33-year-old Rachael Rene on Tuesday morning then went to police headquarters to turn himself in.

    The couple had an 8-month-old child, who was in the apartment at the time but was unharmed. The baby is now in the custody of state child welfare officials.

    Police say they had a strained relationship and Rene had taken out a restraining order against Matta.
