WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A man is behind bars in connection to Saturday’s deadly domestic violence stabbing. It happened at a home in the 2400 block of South Washington just after 4 a.m.
Jason McCaleb was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder.
Family and friends say the victim, 28-year-old Devin Cook, died after being stabbed multiple times. Cook leaves behind two children. The last two days have been heartbreaking for those closest to Cook.
“I was devastated. I was crushed. I was hurt, heartbroken,” said Marjorie Lee, a family friend.
The last two days have been filled with tears and frustration for Lee.
“She was like a daughter to me, and I love and miss her,” said Lee.
Outside of photos and memories, Lee only has one thing to remember Cook by, a ring that was a gift. The family is trying to raise money through a GoFundMe page. The money will go towards Cook’s funeral and taking care of her children.
“They’re gonna need this because they lost a good mom. They lost a good person,” Lee said.
Lee wants people in the community to remember Cook for her loving traits.
“She was compassionate. She was sweet. She was caring. She loved her baby. I know she did. You can see it in her, she loved that baby,” said Lee.
