OREM -- A woman is dead and a man is in serious condition following a domestic dispute.

Around 11:30 a.m., police received a call of a couple fighting inside their home near 500 East and Sage Circle.

"Our patrol officers get on scene and they find a husband and wife, both in their late 20s, both with several stab wounds," said Orem police Sgt. Craig Martinez.

Martinez said investigators can't say for sure if the stabbings were from the domestic dispute or if a third party was involved somehow.

The husband and wife were taken to the hospital, where the woman underwent surgery and later died.

"When she left the scene, she was talking and it looked like everything was going to be OK. And then when got to the hospital, she kind of crashed," Martinez said.

Her husband is still in the Intensive Care Unit at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. His name has not been released.

Police say they've responded to some minor problems at the home before, but this is the first time they've really dealt with this couple.
