LOWELL, MASS. (WHDH) - A man is facing a murder charge after allegedly stabbing a young mother to death in Lowell on Thanksgiving, officials said Monday.

Officers conducting a well-being check for a woman and a two-month-old baby at a Llewelyn Street home found the woman, later identified as Dejah Jenkins-Minus, 22, of Boston, dead at the scene, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office. The two-month-old was found unharmed.

The Chief Medical Examiner determined Jenkins-Minus’s death a homicide by multiple sharp force injuries and the DA’s Office said a knife found at the scene appeared to be consistent with the murder weapon.

Police arrested Leonard D. Robinson, 22, of Lowell, on Monday, and charged him with murder.
