Woman Killed In Brutal Murder

A woman is stabbed to death, and police have arrested her suspected killer.

Greenville Police say 34-year-old Crystal Riddle was stabbed to death inside an apartment at the Treybrooke Apartment Complex in Greenville. That's just off Fifth St. near Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Police say Riddle had been stabbed several times, and that appears to be what killed her. The man who lived in the apartment with her, 39-year-old Vicente Leroy Hernandez has been arrested and charged with murder.

Police say Hernandez had injuries that needed medical attention and was taken to the hospital Monday night. By Tuesday morning, Hernandez had been put in jail without bond.

Detectives say someone worried about Crystal Riddle called police and asked them to check on her. That check revealed her murder just before 8 p.m. Monday.
