Police: Woman fatally stabbed; suspect taken into custody
SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — Police say a woman has been fatally stabbed at her suburban Cleveland home.
Shaker Heights police say they responded to a home about 9:30 p.m. Saturday for a reported domestic dispute.
They say 45-year-old Aisha (ah-EE’-shah) Fraser had been stabbed and died. Police say they took a male suspect into custody as he tried to leave the scene in an SUV and struck a police vehicle.
Police were continuing their investigation Sunday.
Officials said Fraser worked in Shaker Heights Schools for 16 years and most recently taught at Woodbury Elementary School.
Shaker Heights Superintendent Stephen Wilkins’ statement said Fraser was a devoted mother and a committed teacher.
The Shaker Heights Teachers’ Association set up a gofundme.com account with the proceeds going to Fraser’s daughters, ages 11 and 8.
