    A man who is accused of stabbing his wife in a brutal domestic attack in Cheshire has now been charged with murder.

    Police found the victim, Monica Dominguez, in a pool of blood on the floor of a home on Mountain Road in Cheshire when they responded to the house on Wednesday night. They said she had been stabbed as many as 30 times. 

    Dominguez was transported to the hospital and police said on Sunday that she had died.

    Dominguez's husband, 31-year-old Emmanuel Dominguez-VillaGomez, was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree assault, risk of injury, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint.

    Charges have been upgraded after the medical examiner’s report.

    The victim's two children were inside the home at the time of the assault - an 11-year-old boy who called 911 and a girl who is almost 2 years old, according to court papers.

    The court document also say that police who responded saw several knives and a lot of blood at the scene.

    Monica Dominguez had several cuts on her throat, but she was able to tell paramedics, “he tried to kill me and, “he say, I cheated on him,” referring to VillaGomez.

    Dominguez-VillaGomez is due in court on Oct. 8.
