A violent death for a Valley mom after she's stabbed in front of her children Friday night.

Witnesses tell police 41-year-old Maria Gonzalez was stabbed by her husband during an argument, possibly over money. The suspect began to physically assault Gonzalez.

Phoenix Police Sergeant Steve Martos said it was in front of their children.

"This suspect began to physically assault his wife in front of the kids. We understand that there [are] 8 children that belong to Maria, ages 6 to 24," Martos said.

Two of the kids tried to pull the husband off, he then got a knife and stabbed at Gonzalez, according to police. She died later at a local hospital.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, was injured and is in critical condition at a local hospital.

Police are still investigating the matter.
