Rocio Nikaury Morcelo
Rocio Nikaury Morcelo, 43 years old, was fatally stabbed by her boyfriend 34 times in the stairwell of her Wheaton, Maryland apartment. Rocio’s three children heard the attack. Rocio filed a protective order in District Court three months before her death. Rocio stated, “He has been threatening me and my kids for days that he is going to kill us.” She received an interim protective order, but Rocio did not show up to her next hearing, and her case was dismissed.
