A Manhattan man remains in custody after being arraigned Monday on second-degree murder charges in connection with the violent stabbing death of his girlfriend over the weekend.
Police say they got a call for help just after 2 a.m. Sunday, but could not find the right building.
Forty minutes later, Raul Barrera, 33, turned himself in to authorities and said he had done "something bad" to his girlfriend.
Investigators say the 23-year-old woman was found stabbed several times inside the home located at 63 Clinton Street.
Court papers say she had multiple stab wounds on her face and body.
"She had been stabbed, eight knives were recovered in the apartment, and he has made full admissions and his statement has been recorded by the district attorney’s office," said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
According to details released at the arraignment, Barrera admitted to stabbing Coit after a fight.
Neighbors say they heard the pair arguing.
Barrera's next court date is scheduled for April 15.
