    Authorities say a woman who had been stabbed pointed the finger at her boyfriend before she died, saying "He killed me."

    Twenty-five-year-old Darren Morales of Coolbaugh Township is charged with criminal homicide in Thursday's death of 41-year-old Mahuanki Figueroa.

    Authorities allege that Morales first told police that she picked up a kitchen knife during a fight and accidentally cut her own throat after he grabbed her.

    But they said he later acknowledged that she told a neighbor trying to provide first aid that he was responsible.

    Court documents indicate that Morales was being represented by the county public defender's office, which rang unanswered Saturday.
