A 46-year-old woman was found dead late Sunday night in her apartment in Tel Aviv's Tikva neighborhood, in the city's poverty-ridden southern section.

The woman, later named as Erna Boronenko, had been stabbed in the stomach, leading police to suspect that she had been murdered. Three individuals who were inside the apartment at the time - one man and two women - were subsequently arrested.

It was the second time police had visited the neighborhood during the night. Earlier, neighbors had called police to complain of noise and shouts emanating from the same apartment.

Police arrived at the scene, only to return several hours later - this time in the company of an MDA ambulance - after receiving reports of a woman trapped inside the apartment.

An emergency response team attempted to resuscitate the woman, but was forced to pronounce her dead at the scene.
