Boyfriend arrested in fatal stabbing in South Salt Lake

SOUTH SALT LAKE — Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for a fatal stabbing inside his family’s apartment in South Salt Lake.

Officers say 24-year-old Angelo Kirstine was arguing with his girlfriend before the stabbing occurred, but are unsure what the argument was about. The Kirstine’s grandfather found the victim around 1:00 a.m. Tuesday. The suspect’s sister was at the apartment at the time but says she didn’t hear anything.

The family took the suspect to the University of Utah Medical Center for a mental issue where he told the staff there that he’d hurt someone. University Police were contacted at the same time South Salt Lake Police received the dispatch call.

Kirstine was taken into custody without incident and is facing a charge of Murder 1.
