    An 18-year-old Hartford woman was stabbed and killed in a Windsor bank parking lot just after 3 p.m. on Thursday and police say her ex-boyfriend is the person who attacked her.

    Police say Marqz Robotham, 18, and Allison Owen, 18, were high school sweethearts. They recently graduated from Windsor High School and moved in together in Hartford but their relationship had ended recently.

    On Thursday, they met at the bank on Windsor Avenue. Witnesses tell police they saw the two talking for a long time, then Robotham attacked her.

    Owen was rushed to St. Francis Hospital where she died from her injuries just before 4:30 p.m.

    One witness told police he saw Robotham stab Owen 10 times.

    At least one person who witnessed the attack followed Robotham and called police.

    Robotham was arrested at his grandmother's home. He was charged with murder and unlawful restraint. He is being held on $1 million bond and is due in court on Friday, April 30.
