MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) — Two people were killed and another person was injured in a violent confrontation in a Meriden home, police said.
Officers responded to a multifamily home on Lincoln Street shortly after 12:30 a.m. Police said a man with stab wounds was on the front porch, and a man who appeared dead and a woman with stab wounds were inside an apartment.
Medics confirmed the man inside the apartment was dead. The woman died from her injuries at a hospital. Police identified them as Cornelius Nicholson, 38, and Tania Roman, 41. Roman lived in the apartment and Nicholson lived in Wallingford, police said.
