Family members arriving at a West Side home to celebrate Thanksgiving instead found a grisly scene — a woman had been stabbed to death and her husband, the suspect, was still in the house, according to police.

Officers were called to the home in 10400 block of Vista del Sol NW, on the north side of Ellison between Golf Course and Coors Bypass, at 1:30 p.m., said Albuquerque police spokesman Gilbert Gallegos.

The husband was taken into custody. Police didn’t identify the man or woman on Thursday.

It marked the third serious violent crime that police have investigated over the Thanksgiving holiday. Late Wednesday, a man was shot in the chest in Northeast Heights apartment complex parking lot and taken to a hospital, where he was in critical condition on Thursday.

Just after midnight Wednesday, a woman was struck by a vehicle near Lomas and Yale NE. Because of the evidence at the scene, the Homicide Unit took over the investigation, according to police.
