Arrest made after young woman stabbed to death in New Hampshire

CONCORD, N.H. (WHDH) — A homicide investigation is underway after a woman was found stabbed to death Tuesday night in New Hampshire’s capital city, officials said

Concord police responded around 9 p.m. to a 911 call that stated a person was hurt inside of a car in the area of 369 North State Street.

Officers found a woman suffering from an apparent stab wound, authorities said. She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The victim was identified as Sabrina Marie Galusha, 23, of Concord.

Officials said Galusha’s friends attempted to drive her to the hospital, but realized they would not make it in time, so they instead called for help.

“The incident actually took place at the apartments in Penacook and then a carload of individuals, including the victim, left that area,” Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin said. “They drove a short distance before they pulled over and called 911.”

Daswan Jette, 20, of Concord, was arrested and charged Wednesday in Galusha’s death.

“She was a good kid,” the victim’s father, Mark Galusha said.” She had a heart of gold.”

An autopsy on Galusha determined that her cause of death was a stab wound to the chest and her manner of death is homicide.

Jette faces two counts of second-degree murder. He is slated to be arraigned Thursday in Concord Superior Court.

Police said an investigation is ongoing.
