A Long Island woman was arrested early Sunday morning, accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death.

Police in Medford were called to 643 Granny Road at about 2:30 a.m., and found Melvin Garcia, 48, with stab wounds. Garcia was apparently stabbed by his grilfriend, Cynthia Dean, during an argument.

Garcia was taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, where he was pronounced dead.

Dean, 32, was arrested and charged with first-degree manslaughter. She is expected to be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Central Islip.
