SOUTH MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A South Milwaukee man has been charged in the brutal stabbing of a woman found covered in blood in a wheelchair.

Kehinde Afolayan, 31, faces one count of first-degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon.

The fatal stabbing happened on Friday, Jan. 11 near 5th Avenue and Clark Avenue in South Milwaukee.

According to a criminal complaint, police responded to a lower unit at a four-unit apartment building, where they found the 62-year-old female victim lying motionless in her wheelchair, covered in blood, who "appeared to be partially disemboweled."

Meanwhile, the complaint said Afolayan came downstairs "holding a blood-covered white undershirt." He was arrested.

An autopsy revealed she suffered 116 stab wounds: 48 to the chest, 50 to the abdomen and 18 to the arms, shoulder and hands.

A bloody knife was found on the floor of the kitchen, the complaint said. The 12-centimeter blade was bent. Another bloody knife with the blade missing was found, and a third was found in the driveway of the house next door.

The complaint said police were unable to identify Afolayan because "he was not communicative," other than "uttering statements such as 'Jesus forgives me.'"
