The victim was identified by police as 39-year-old Ryan Outlaw and the woman who stabbed him to death was recognized as his girlfriend, Fernanda Tobar, 22.

The police report suggests that the couple were consuming alcohol before they broke out into an argument. 

“[Tobar] said that she was very angry and ‘full of rage’ this evening due to some jealousy issues between her and [victim],’ a Salt Lake City Police officer wrote in an arrest report.

During the argument, Tobar told police that the victim had pushed her, but the couple separated and the argument continued. Tobar then told investigators that she began throwing objects out the window of the couple’s seventh-floor apartment, the arrest report says.

"[Tobar] said that [victim] was still talking 'smack' to her. She told detectives that [victim] started to walk toward the apartment door as if to leave. At that point, [Tobar] stated she began to hit [victim] with her hands all over his chest and back. [Tobar] stated she picked up a sharp item and admitted to 'hitting' [victim] with it on his chest," the arrest report says.
