The man, identified as 61-year-old Derrick Woodard, ran from the house after the stabbing before turning himself in to police minutes later, said Sgt. Parys Thomas, a Lauderhill Police Department spokeswoman.

Around 6:15 p.m Saturday, Thomas said police arrived at the house, located at the 5700 block of Northwest 12th Street, to find the woman suffering from multiple stab wounds.
