According to Phoenix police, the suspect has been identified as 30-year-old Ulrick Woody. 

Police say the victim's sister was in the home at the time, visiting her sister and mother. Court documents state that she told officers that Woody came to the apartment and stabbed his ex-wife multiple times.

Neighbors also told police they observed Woody following his ex-mother-in-law to the parking lot where he stabbed her several times as she tried to flee. She was found in the parking lot with multiple wounds and the blades of three knives still stuck in her face and head.

The ex-wife fled to a neighbor's apartment after being stabbed where witnesses told police that Woody forced his way into the apartment and stabbed her several more times. Neighbors say Woody then fled the scene.

Documents state that both victims survived their injuries. 

Woody has an extensive criminal history stemming back to at least 2015 when he was arrested after he was found passed out on a sidewalk with his 4-year-old stepdaughter sleeping next to him by a busy road.

Documents state that Woody was arrested about a year ago for a domestic violence incident between he and his ex-wife.

Court documents also state that Woody was on release for another felony charge. Whether the previous domestic violence arrest and the previous felony charge are related is unknown at this time.
