NEW BRUNSWICK — A man found stabbed inside a house with his stepdaughter Tuesday morning was charged with first-degree murder in connection with her death by Middlesex County Prosecutor Yvonne Ciccone.

Lissi Rodriguez-Sanchez, 20, of New Brunswick, and Teodulo Habana, 64, of New Brunswick were found at a house on Juliet Street in New Brunswick around 9:10 AM with multiple stab wounds.

Rodriguez-Sanchez was pronounced dead at the house while Habana was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

His wounds were determined to be self-inflicted. Several hours later he was also charged with third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.

Ciccone did not disclose a motive for the stabbing or where Rodriguez-Sanchez and Habana were found. However, she asked anyone with surveillance footage of the area to call her office at 732-745-3289 or New Brunswick Police Department at 732-745-5200.

Motive for 'murder'

The stabbing had not been added to the New Brunswick police department crime mapping tool as of Wednesday morning.
