Neighbors react to Tuesday stabbing

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Neighbors in a Wichita Falls community are reacting to the death of Katherine Acuna, 45, who Wichita Falls Police say died after being stabbed by boyfriend, Narciso Espinosa.

“With a lot of things and relationships and families and stuff, it’s hard times for everybody,” said a neighbor of Acuna.

According to neighbors, Acuna and her family were quiet, mowed their grass, and even played with their kids at Grant Street Park.

“They tend to themselves just like everybody else does,” said neighbor of Acuna.

According to Espinosa’s statement, he lived with Acuna at the residence on Grant Street and they had an argument which turned physical. He allegedly said he” lost control of himself” grabbed a knife, stabbing Acuna “one or two times.”

“I can’t really speak on anybody else’s household but from my understanding of life, in certain situations right now it all builds on stability, finances and trying to be a provider,” said neighbor of Acuna.

Wichita Falls First Step says domestic violence is happening more and more in our community.

“The deaths are increasing and also the intensity of the actual violence is getting extremely worse,” said Michelle Turnbow , Executive Director First Step.

Espinosa is being held in the Wichita County Jail on a murder charge and a $1,000,000 bond.
