A man was arrested after one woman was found dead on the living room floor and another injured at a Kissimmee home, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Marcos Lopez said during a news briefing  on Tuesday that Osceola deputies received a call about a stabbing at a Kissimmee home and found a woman with cuts on her hands and another woman dead with apparent stab wounds.

The injured woman told deputies that a family member was responsible for the death, and deputies found the man a few blocks away with blood on his hands and arrested him, Lopez said.

According to the Sheriff, the stabbing was a result of domestic violence.

“This is sad,” Lopez said. “We don’t have a history at this house for domestic violence, but it’s real. We’ve always tried to raise awareness. We really kind of hope that people come out and talk about that. We don’t know what triggered this event.”

Sheriff Lopez said that the woman with cuts to her hands may have received the injuries while trying to defend herself against the attack. The womanwas taken to the hospital for her injuries.  This is an active domestic violence investigation.
