The NYPD says Reyes-Gomez had been found in her Bronx apartment around 3 a.m. on Monday with stab wounds to her body. Police believe she was killed by her estranged husband, 33-year-old Argenis Baez who later turned himself in to police.
The prosecution at Baez’s arraignment this week said footage shows him forcing himself into her apartment that morning then leaving with a knife. He's now facing a murder charge.
The two have a 3-year-old child together. Police sources say Reyes-Gomez allegedly had plans to leave Baez.
He says his wife knew the victim.
Reyes-Gomez’s loved ones say she was a giving person who spent her life helping others.
