    Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said he would find a special prosecutor to handle the case.

    A woman was found stabbed to death in a bathtub of her boyfriend's Brooklyn apartment, police say.    

    Police charged 36-year-old Brian Sohtz with murder.  

    Sohtz yelled that he was sorry as police led him out of the station in handcuffs. According to the Daily News, Sohtz wailed, "I'm sorry. I loved Daniella. I'm sorry to her family. I'm sorry for my children."   

    The NYPD says Sohtz was arrested in Suffolk County. They say he was headed there when he called a relative who in turn called police.    

    The 34-year-old victim, Daniella Mannino, was found at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.     

    The New York Times says she was the daughter of Joseph Mannino, who worked in the office services department of the Brooklyn district attorney's office.

    A male relative of Mannino told the Daily News that Mannino had a 13-year-old daughter. Another relative told the Daily News that Sohtz has four children of his own.

    Records show that Sohtz has a prior arrest for menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, reported the Daily News.

    A spokesman told the paper that District Attorney Charles Hynes would seek a special prosecutor in the case.     

    It was not immediately known if Sohtz had a lawyer.
