Melgar and the victim were dating and living together. He told investigators his girlfriend had accused him of stealing her cell phone and had slapped and bit him when he did not return it to her. Melgar stated he grew tired of his girlfriend’s actions and retrieved a large kitchen knife from his cousin’s apartment.
