A twenty-year-old woman was found stabbed to death in her apartment in Ashkelon Saturday, while her crying infant was lying by her side.

Police have taken a friend of the woman in for questioning, after she was found in the area shortly thereafter.

The body of the victim was found after neighbors called the police saying they heard a toddler crying for an extended period of time.

Paramedics were called to the scene after no one answered the door, and after breaking their way in, they pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
