(KSL News) A Magna man is suspected of murdering his ex-girlfriend in her home.
Detectives say Charles Gunkel broke into the home of Molly Robbins Friday while she and her daughter were there.
Lt. Paul Jeroscak of the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office says the woman's daughter called police when Gunkel allegedly started attacking her mother.
When officers arrived at the home near 7200 West and 3940 South, they found Robbins stabbed to death. They found Gunkel a few blocks away, sitting in his front yard.
Gunkel now is sitting in the Salt Lake County Jail. Jeroscak says Gunkel faces charges of aggravated murder, burglary and assault.
The victim was a mother of five. Investigators have not determined a motive in the stabbing.
