Woman Stabbed to Death, Man Found in Burning Car

CORPUS CHRISTI - A young woman died from what appear to be multiple stab wounds last night in Flour Bluff. Police believe her attacker is being treated for severe burns suffered in a car fire outside the Walmart on Greenwood Drive.

The 23-year-old woman was found at a home on Ransom Island Drive just after 7 p.m. last night as officer were called for a car crash. Police say they never found a crash scene but did find the woman with what appear to be stab wounds. She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told police a gold Nissan Altima sped away from the crime scene. A little less than an hour later, the same type of car was set on fire outside the Walmart.

According to police, the driver suffered burns to the majority of his body. Firefighters were able to put the fire out and rushed the man to the hospital. Mulugeta Tirfe is now being treated in San Antonio with critical injuries.

Police have not confirmed Tirfe's relation to the murder victim.
