A 28-year-old Gates woman is facing murder charges after a 60-year-old Rochester man was found stabbed to death inside an apartment.
Amber Favasuli is charged with second-degree murder.
Rochester Police tell News10NBC they were called to the 1800 block of St. Paul Street around 2:30 p.m. Thursday for the report of a woman, with a large amount of blood on her clothing, walking in the area. A few minutes later, officers received a call for the report of a man down in the same area.
