When Antioch Police Department Patrol officers arrived on scene, the 30-year-old female victim, from Antioch, was found suffering from numerous stab wounds. 32-year-old Hang Lin, also of Antioch, was contacted at the scene and it was determined that he was in a domestic relationship with the victim.
