Man stabs girlfriend; turns knife on self

An argument between a man and a woman has left one hospitalized. According to Orange Walk Police twenty-two year old Mariana Buddan was at home when her boyfriend, twenty-eight year old Heriberto Jesus Rejon, went to the residence around nine this morning. Investigations reveal that the couple was eating when Rejon accused Buddan of having another boyfriend. That’s when Buddan told authorities that Rejon got up from the table, went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed her in the palm of her left hand. Rejon then proceeded to stab himself in the stomach. While Buddan has since been released from the Northern Regional Hospital, Rejon remains admitted to ward. Police say they have not yet brought any charges against Rejon and Buddan has not indicated whether or not she will be pursuing legal action against her boyfriend.
