    Rhode Island Woman Killed; Boyfriend in Custody
    NBC10 Philadelphia

    Police say a Rhode Island woman has been found dead in her Providence home and her boyfriend is charged in the killing.

    Police say 34-year-old Louis Matta stabbed 33-year-old Rachael Rene on Tuesday morning then went to police headquarters to turn himself in.

    The couple had an 8-month-old child, who was in the apartment at the time but was unharmed. The baby is now in the custody of state child welfare officials.

    Police say they had a strained relationship and Rene had taken out a restraining order against Matta.

    The death toll from Typhoon Hagibis climbed to 53 on Tuesday, days after it tore through Japan and left hundreds of thousands of homes wrecked, flooded or out of power. Hagibis caused more than 200 rivers to overflow when it hit the island nation on Saturday.

    The death was the city's second homicide of the year.
