PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — A violent weekend in the capital city has left two dead.
Two separate domestic incidents lead to the 8th and 9th homicides in Providence this year.
One suspect has been charged and the other is being questioned by the Providence Police Department. The two murders took place less than 24 hours apart.
The first took place on Ontario Street in Providence where children reported their mother missing Friday and found her body concealed in their apartment hours later.
Police say they have a suspect they are questioning, but have not yet charged him with the murder.
The victim has been identified as 44-year-old Manirino Nkinamubanzi, a mother of four who recently moved to Providence from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Nkinamubanzi had recently separated from her husband and had a restraining order against him.
“Our main thoughts right now are with the children. They are currently staying with a social worker right now and relatives have been notified,” said Major David Lapatin of the Providence Police Department.
