AKRON, Ohio - A mother of three children was stabbed to death in Akron after a domestic dispute with her ex-husband turned physically violent on Friday morning, Action News reported.
Police officials said that the woman's ex-husband, Larry L. Hunter, 32, allegedly stabbed her to death inside her house on Akron's east side and then he barricaded himself inside the home, leading to a 90-minute standoff situation with authorities.
Some neighbors were upset at what they said was extremely slow response time by police. After hearing screams form inside the home and then calling 911, they said that it took authorities more than 20 minutes to respond. They said that they repeatedly called 911 to find out what was taking them so long and were told that most officers were already at the scene of another crime.
