Fraider Diaz-Carbajal, 35, of Shakopee, Minnesota is charged with second-degree murder for allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death before cutting his own throat. 

A 35-year-old Shakopee, Minnesota man is facing charges after he allegedly killed his former girlfriend before attempting to kill himself last week.

On Tuesday evening, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced it placed an immigration detainer with the Scott County Jail on Fraider Diaz-Carbajal, "an illegal alien from Mexico, for suspected immigration violations following his local arrest for second-degree murder."

According to ICE, Diaz-Carbajal has a criminal history that includes "numerous misdemeanor convictions, including three DUIs and one for domestic assault. On Dec. 17, 2012, a federal immigration judge ordered Diaz-Carbajal removed (deported) to Mexico;  ICE officers removed him two days later. Since then he illegally re-entered the United States, which is a felony. He remains in local custody pending adjudication of his criminal charges."

Fraider Diaz-Carbajal is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Enedelia Perez Garcia. 

Shortly after 4 p.m. on Aug. 12, officers were called to an apartment on the 1200 block of Taylor Street on a report of an assault. According to the criminal complaint, when officers arrived, they found Diaz-Carbajal lying face down on top of the victim. The victim was sitting on the floor with her back against the wall and did not appear to be breathing. The suspect was laying on her with his head resting on her stomach and chest. Officers observed a lot of blood around the pair and in the area, as well as a large knife covered in blood next to the suspect. 

Garcia had blood around her neck and multiple stab wounds all over her body. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed she died of multiple sharp force injuries. 

Diaz-Carbajal had a six to eight-inch long laceration on his throat and several stab wounds to his abdomen. He was taken to the hospital. 

A woman who lived in the apartment where the incident occurred told police Garcia and Diaz-Carbajal had been dating for three years but broke up about a month before the murder.  

On the day of the murder, she was giving her children a bath when she heard Garcia and Diaz-Carbajal arguing. Garcia was screaming and yelling, “Drop the knife.” 
The witness left her children in the bathroom and walked into Diaz-Carbajal’s room, where she saw that he had Garcia pinned up next to the bed and was stabbing her. She then saw him stab himself across his neck.
