Dallas police say Larry Dunn, Jr. made a startling confession last week: He stabbed his girlfriend because she was HIV positive.
Dunn, 36, allegedly told police that he stabbed his new girlfriend, Cicely Bolden, when she told him she was HIV positive, CBS News reported.
Bolden, a 28-year-old mother of two, confessed her status on Thursday, right after she and Dunn had sex, he says.
Angered by the revelation, Dunn allegedly went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife, and stabbed her to death, according to the New York Daily News.
"She killed me, so I killed her," Dunn reportedly said in a recorded interview.
Officials say that after the stabbing, Dunn burned his clothes and the knife and tossed them in a dumpster at a Waffle House restaurant.
Bolden's body was discovered by her son and daughter, ages 7 and 9, when they came home from school, according to neighbor Latoya Arnett.
"...When they walked inside the house, they came out crying," Arnett told WFAA-TV. "I ran out to see what was wrong with them. They were saying, 'Something's wrong with mama!'"
When Arnett saw Bolden's body on the bedroom floor, she called 911.
"All I know is, she didn't deserve it and her kids didn't deserve to see her like that," Arnett said.
Jeff Busby, the father of Bolden's son, told WFAA-TTV that Bolden had contracted HIV within the last couple of years. He currently has custody of both kids.
"They are doing okay, but asking a lot of questions," he told the station.
Dunn has been charged with murder and is currently being held on $500,000 bail.
