WEATHERSFIELD — New details have emerged regarding the stabbing that took place in Weathersfield, on Wednesday, in which one person died and a second was injured.

The deceased man is identified as Daniel Murray, 29, of Springfield.

Investigators learned that Daniel was experiencing a mental-health crisis and had gone to visit his mother and stepfather at their home on Melody Lane in Weathersfield.

His stepfather, 68-year-old Donald Brochu, was working to help Daniel when Daniel broke a glass-front cabinet and used a piece of glass to harm his stepfather.

Brochu suffered critical injuries but was able to escape, at which point Murray used the sharp object to inflict fatal injuries on himself.

Brochu is being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Police say the investigation into this incident is ongoing.
