    Police in Chula Vista responded to a call that the man, 24-year-old Tyler Henderson, had been "accidentally stabbed," according to police at the scene.

    Henderson sustained several stab wounds to his abdomen, according to the San Diego Fire Dept. He was taken to the emergency room, where he died.

    Police said the man's girlfriend, 36-year-old Xochilt Tobon, lived in the Otay Mesa apartment complex with their child, her sister and her sister's child.

    Police say Henderson and Tobon got into a fight was over a phone, which may have led to the stabbing, accidental or not.

    Tobon was booked in the Las Colinas Detention Facility for murder, according to Chula Vista police.

    "This is either going to be a domestic violence criminal act, or a terrible accident," said Sgt. Rusty Rea with Chula Vista Police Department.
