Bronx woman slashed in the foot later, boyfriend arrested, case deemed a homicide

December 3, 2018
The police have arrested a Bronx man in connection with the murder of a woman found Nov. 3 with a deep slash wound on her left foot.

A 44-year-old Bronx woman who was cut in the foot by her boyfriend died a couple weeks later — and her death has been deemed a homicide, cops said Monday.

Cops were called to Dayanara Carela’s second-floor apartment on W. 238th St. near Orloff Ave. in Kingsbridge about 9 p.m. Nov. 3 on a report that she had been assaulted.

EMTs took from her to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition with a deep slash wound to her left foot. She was treated and released.

Her live-in boyfriend, Gilbert Nunez, 43, was arrested Nov. 5 on felony assault charges for the alleged attack.

On Nov. 18, someone called 911 to report that Carela a medical issue. Medics took her to Montefiore Medical Center where she died the same day. Her death was later deemed a homicide related to the original wound.

Nunez could face upgraded charges in the wake of Carela’s death.

He has a number of prior arrests, most of which are sealed. He was arrested in February for assaulting Carela and for an unrelated assault in August 2009.
