MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A mother and son tragically died Thursday morning after a stabbing in Raleigh.

The family identified the victims as 36-year-old Claudia Nunez and her 14-year-old son Kevin Nunez.

Claudia’s sister, Sayda Nunez said the stabbing that occurred was from a guy Claudia was attempting to break up with. Her sister says he was just released from jail Sunday.

“She told him after he got out of jail, don’t come into my house, I don’t wanna see you anymore and he wouldn’t take that,” said Sayda Nunez, Claudia’s Sister.

That’s when Sayda said her sister and son were both stabbed 13 times.

MPD officials say the domestic attack happened just after 3:30 a.m.

When officers arrived, they found Claudia already dead. Her son was taken to Le Bonheur Hospital and also died from his injuries.

Her family said they cannot fathom why someone would do this to her. Claudia leaves her two daughters behind.

“She was sweet, kind, respectful,” said Nunez.

Jose Murillo-Salgado, 42, of Bartlett, Tennessee was arrested later that afternoon by Arkansas State Troopers for the crime.

Murillo-Salgado was transported to the Hempstead County Detention Center where he was held for Memphis police.

Officials say he is now back in Shelby County.
