New York City woman, 27, is savagely stabbed to death in her Harlem apartment building 'by her ex-boyfriend who she had a restraining order against'

 A New York City man has been accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death inside her Harlem apartment on Wednesday night, just 30 minutes after she called the police to report that he  had violated a restraining order.

Fernando Munera, 26, was charged with murder, burglary and criminal contempt on Thursday in connection with the brutal killing of 27-year-old Alayna Hardy.

Munera remained hospitalized in critical condition after suffering knife wounds to his chest and neck at the hands of his victim, who police say had desperately fought for her life.

According to the NYPD, Hardy called 911 at around 8.15pm to report that her ex-boyfriend was on her fire escape on East 115th Street in violation of a restraining order, which has been in effect since February following a domestic incident involving the former couple, reported New York Daily News.


By the time police officers responded to the scene, Munera had left.

At around 8.45pm, Munera allegedly returned to Hardy’s apartment and repeatedly stabbed her in the body and neck during a fight, which also left the suspected attacker badly injured.

A neighbor told the New York Post he heard a woman crying out, followed by silence.

Hardy was rushed to Metropolitan Hospital, where she was pronounced dead from her injuries a short time later.

Hardy had a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend stemming from a domestic incident that took place in February. About 30 minutes before the stabbing, she called 911 to report that Munera was on her fire escape in violation of the order of protection 

Earlier that same day, another neighbor spotted Munera pacing up and down First Avenue with his fists clenched and muttering, 'f*** this b****' and 'f*** this c***.'

The neighbor, Noel Enrique Bermudez, told the Daily News that Munera had 'hatred in his eyes.'

‘His eyes told me he was going to do something stupid, something dumb, someone was going to get hurt,’ the witness recalled.

Hardy was a native of Arizona but lived in New York City for several years. It is unclear how long she and Munera had been together, but a photo posted on her Facebook page in December showed the woman embracing her boyfriend.

On February 13, Munera was charged with unlawful imprisonment, harassment and property damage stemming from a domestic incident involving Hardy.

Prosecutors said during his arraignment that Munera restrained Hardy, took away her phone and prevented her from leaving a bedroom.

After she managed to escape, Munera allegedly vandalized her apartment.

A judge issued a temporary order of protection against Munera, prohibiting him from contacting Hardy - even as he continued living in the same building as his ex-girlfriend.

Munera was scheduled to appear before a judge in connection with the February case on Thursday morning, just hours before Hardy's killing.
