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.
